PureNordicPower Looks nice, i got out my camera and took some pics of my saab with my dads, but I'm too lazy to actually host them to get them online.

ng900 Pull straight forward, but not too far, the lights in it don't have very long wires. Once it's out a bit you can twist the lights and pull them out easily.

danthegolfer woooooooooooooooow i ge tit now! haha yeah the piece fits.. it was just hidden in the handle! that tool isa good idea...

anyway.. umm i undid that screw but how do i pull off that corner lihgt thing now? i pulled gentlyin a few directions and it wouldnt really come out.... maybe im dumb tho

ng900 That screwdriver is a Saab owner's best friend, I use that thing almost every time I'm doing something to my car.
04-27-2005 09:57 AM
saabguy yeah, mine worked just fine, i struggled with allen wrenches for a while, then my dad told me there were tools in the trunk, grabbed one and it worked, i was happy

ng900 Flip the flathead bar around, the other end should be the right size star shape.

what the hell you mean too big on one side and too small on the other...It fits into the black end of the screwdriver tool thingy...you have to rotate it and slide it in certain way...it'll fit...it's made for it...

Logan Leslie I had that same problem with my first 9000. Since a ton of stuff on saabs takes torx drivers, you might as well just go buy a set of bits in all the sizes. Sears and places like autozone have them. You won't regret the purchase...
04-26-2005 08:16 PM
danthegolfer in the first pic, youre referring to the tool on the right side correct?

the smaller end of that tool is too small, and the larger end is too big... ill check for rust but i really dont think i can get it in there!
04-26-2005 07:59 PM
saabguy that star one should work, maybe you have some rust in the screw slot, empty a can of wd-40 on it.

and the debadging removes the words "saab" "900s", and "2.3" off the back, it makes it look much cleaner, and i love it like it

i looked in the trunk and found these 2 tools near the spare tire, however one is shaped like a flathead screwdriver and doesnt fit, and the other one is the correct star shape but its too big on one side and too small on the other!!! argh

below are the 2 tools i found... i looked around but there the only ones in there

is there one im not seeing?

rcmdesign That's the correct one, and check the trunk of your saab should have the proper tool right in there with the spare tire...
04-26-2005 06:34 PM
danthegolfer about the debadging.. what does it remove? it doesnt say on there and i cant tell a difference on the pictures.. maybe im just dumb lol... oh and i didnt really ASK my dad to do it, although it is his car (i drive it tho), the reason he found out about it was i asked him if we had a star wrench thing for me to take off the headlight... my allen wrenches dont reach down deep enough.. so do i need to get get a star wrench tip thingy or can iuse something else to get that little screw off? a picture of the screw im talking about is attached... thanks

by the way, if this is not the correct screw to remove to take off the turn signal holder, please tell me.. lol
04-26-2005 04:43 PM
saabguy you asked? wow

it's really easy to do, took me like an hour cause i got a phone call while i was doing them

this is the site that told me how to do it:
http://www.lehigh.edu/~cak7/Appearance/ClearTurns.html

there are some other great things on that site, here is the main site for that:
http://www.lehigh.edu/~cak7/Saab.html

if you haven't debadged your car yet, do that too, it's so easy to do, and don't tell your dad, lol. he wont notice if you don't tell him
there are instructions on how to do that too on that site under appearance.

ng900 As a matter of fact, I had the same problem with my father. The reflectors are far enough back that the light of the bulb doesn't shine through them for the most part, and the light that does is just the turn signal, so they really serve no purpose. The only reason they are on there from the factory is a really old US law that says all cars must have reflectors in the lenses somewhere. It only applies to cars for sale new, once you have the car you can clear them and it's perfectly legal (I have friends in legal places )

(PS Don't ask, he probably won't notice I've cleared my corners, cleared my side markers (the ones near the doors) and I've totally changed things under the hood, added a switch to my console, have under-dash LEDs, and the only thing my dad's noticed is my racing numbers and my exhaust tip. Just make sure you don't do everything at once, make it gradual)
04-26-2005 03:35 PM
rcmdesign I believe in some states you won't pass inspection by not having the orange reflector there...it's a requirement for vision purposes...easier to see a car with those or something...who knows...All I know is that I passed inspection with mine, then again I paid for the real ones...
04-26-2005 03:31 PM
danthegolfer hey i asked my dad if i could do the clear corners mod, but he said no. he thinks that the plastic reflectors are in there for a reason (safety i suppose) and he wont let me take them out. i know because of the yellow bulb inside, they will still show up amber as a turning signal should, but hes convinced it will make it not shine as much, so he wont let me do it. is there anyone who could send sum pics i could show him, to persuade him that they are just as bright? or are they not as bright and i dont stand a chance... any help???!!! lol thanks
04-26-2005 02:47 PM
ng900 Yeah, I just cleared the corners on my car, it looks so much better. Careful when you do it though, unlike the healights, the corner lenses aren't glass, they're plastic, so if you're too rough you'll crack the lens, that's what happened to me. There's a tutorial in the tutorial section (redundant, I know) if it'll help.
