If it's flashing, then chances are there's something connected to one of the bus wires in the radio's wiring harness. It's pretty common for a VW radio harness to have that problem, and VW harnesses...

There's nothing that holds down the spoiler in the middle, except for tape. Unlike the regular spoiler, which has three nuts that hold it down, the Viggen spoiler only uses the outer two holes.

You can get pretty much the same effect as that Saab kit by buying a roll of 3M 1/8" trim tape and replacing the tape on the bottom of your spoiler. The side clips should be able to be bent back...

You're never going to match Saab's wire colors, since they're proprietary to each car manufacturer. Google "Richard Bevan Saab" and take a look at the pin-out diagrams he has on his Saab Audio...

Taillights yes, brake lights no, but since one bulb on each doubles as a brake light and a taillight, the answer's more no than yes. I had to put a pretty hefty resistor on mine to keep the brake...

Tire shops always make you put new tires on the back if you just buy a pair. The reasoning is that they don't want the back to lose traction and swing out on you. You'll definitely have more...

Pop off the glass (use a screwdriver wrapped in a rag) and you'll see all of the clips that hold the plastic piece on. I think there are about four. That also gives you more than enough room to...

There is no switch on the gearshift in these cars. The wire that powers the backup lights runs underneath the driver's side doorsill. In the NG900, it's a completely white wire, and the only one in...

Saab used such a variety of speakers with different impedances in these cars that your stereo can handle what you put in just fine. I'd go with 4 ohm speakers in the rear. They're easier for the...

In 2002, all 9-3s were SEs. There was no base model, just an SE with most of the options taken out and an SE with the options. I think the model with the options was called the SE with the premium...

The stock bulbs are halogen. I kind of doubt you can buy anything but halogen bulbs these days, unless you want to go to HIDs, but they're not usually recommended.

That's not the PCV that you're taking hoses off of. That's the APC, the Automatic Performance Control. You should probably replace it so that your car runs properly, although some people disconnect...

Your problem is the Moog bumper, like you thought. Moog's bumper is just like Monroe's, which is too tall for our cars. I'm assuming it must be some kind of universal thing. You could try to cut...

The earlier NG900s don't have the stud for the front of the shield to bolt onto, but they do have the protrusion on the exhaust manifold where the stud would go. The cast iron manifold is very easy...

That's right. I hooked mine up to a powered roof antenna and accidentally used the wrong one. I would've had a dead battery in a day if I hadn't caught my mistake.

Continental makes lots of different tires. Some are pretty good in the snow, and some are completely useless. The same can be said of any brand of tires.
