Hey I'm a newbie here!
I was wondering if it possible to remove orange on the side of the blinkers on my 2001 9-5.. it will give it a much better look i think.
Please let me know if you can jsut remove it. or if i have to get a whole new headlight replacement!
Thanks
-Mike
P.S. ill post a picture soon.

If it's like my 2000 9-3 the answer is yes.I used a hook tool to GENTLEY pry it away,then you have to bust it up to get all the pieces out of the lense.Good luck :D

Hey, theres actually a way to make your corners clear without purchasing new ones. I'm pretty sure all the Saab parts are assembled the same way. Check this link out, its from a Saab 900. http://www.lehigh.edu/~erp4/ClearTurns.html. If it's the same way for a 9-5, I would like to know also. Thanks.

Well pull the corner lense off of your car, and where the bulb screwed into, see if you can insert a long screw driver (flat head) and try and pry off the orange bit. Then break it off with long needle nose pliers, and pull out the pieces. You'll never know unless you pull the damn thing out and take a look inside. :)

the 900 and 9-3 corner lenses are a bit different.
the orange on the 9-3 and 900 are on the bottom where as on the 9-5 its on the top.. no big deal.
but anywase thanks for your help! and i hope this helps other saabers the same way!
