Air shield and wing liner?

Is the wing liner (?) different for a Viggen than a regular 9-3?
if you don't know how the wing liner looks like ( i didn't), here it is:



also, what do you call this plastic piece underneath the car, that connects to the bumper? saabsite has "LOWER SKID PANELS BELOW/BEHIND SPOILER SAAB 93 1998-2003" but i don't understand the difference between:
93 1999-2003 Air Shield Driver Viggen & Aero WCS only OES($ 42.30)
and
93 1999-2003 Front Air Shield Viggen & Aero WCS only OES ( $ 194.58 )

I remember somebody was giving some info to some place that sells this kind of parts for less. link, please?

But my main question is:
"also, what do you call this plastic piece underneath the car, that connects to the bumper? saabsite has "LOWER SKID PANELS BELOW/BEHIND SPOILER SAAB 93 1998-2003" but i don't understand the difference between:
93 1999-2003 Air Shield Driver Viggen & Aero WCS only OES($ 42.30)
and
93 1999-2003 Front Air Shield Viggen & Aero WCS only OES ( $ 194.58 )"

what is the difference between these two?

Sorry to thread jack but how do replace those plastic nuts? Mine were rusted inside and when I unscrewed them they broke right off.. Every single one on my front driver side air shield.

After putting on a few hundred miles with the Viggen bumper I noticed a rather serious handling problem during high speed driving. Over ~85 mph the feel of the Saab became light and unstable. Approaching 110 mph it felt dangerous, the Saab would squirm around like in a high crosswind. The reason was the aerodynamic flow under the front bumper. A high pressure bubble was formed under the front end and was un-weighting the front of the Saab. Normal driving speeds were fine, but the bad airflow also increased drag and decreased fuel economy.

The fix for this problem is simple, Saab makes a lower splash guard for the Viggen bumper, but at a cost of $170. Using cardboard, fiberglass and sealing paint I was able to make my own for $30. Itís not pretty but since no one can see it I didnít care. The one I made is also large and smoother than the part from Saab. There are mounting holes already drilled in the bottom of the bumper and a nice long lip for the splashguard/airfoil to sit on.

yes rafal you have to get those 3 to make a complete air shield in front. trust me you need it. they are designed for airflow not only under the car but also to direct air to the radiator/intercooler.

That's a good question. Anyone wants to check my car's VIN?

So together it makes about $250 shipped. Anyone knows a less expensive source for this kind of stuff, not to mention ERP's DIY?

Nope, I haven't been able to find them cheaper anywhere.

Sucks that the front lower lip of the 3 piece shield costs so much. I need all 3 pieces plus both fender liners .

Also try Strandberg. http://www.strandbergauto.com/saab.html

I got my Viggen/Aero calipers and carriers dirt cheap from them.

Gold wing didn't respond yet. Anyone else who sells them?

I'm going to body shop tomorrow. I'll ask them if they would be able to make one.
