Did this video help you?

Autumn Avery: Just have a female with small hands do it, it took me less than an hour without taking anything out 😁 lol

AJ News: My take away from this video is unless you’re a sabb mechanic or electrical engineer don’t even think about doing this yourself.

Another-Saab Story: I have two questions 1st my headlight kinda flicker they don’t go all the way off just between dimmer and bright enough for me to notice do you think the bulbs are bad? 2nd question can I do a LED conversation on my 03 9-5 and have you done one?

Peter Dimblad: Thanks as always Jonathon :-) My R/H side wiring on my '04 Aero was very, very short which didn't leave much room to disconnect and maneuver the light out and back in again. But very useful guide :-)

Vazza yzf750: Great video, nice of you to show no need to remove bumper, such a relief. Thanks. 😊

Wr G: Hey T7. I really enjoy your videos for the tips and the technical expertise. Do you have any content about turbo control issues? I've been dealing with fuel cut-out for about 2 years & changed just about every boost pressure control. Still get massive stumbles when cruising at 60mph and call for power.
Keep up the great work.

Great video. Clear, concise and accurate. I have been a Volvo V70 XC AWD man for years, Two years ago, I bought a used (2004) SAAB 9_5 2.3t Vector, Automatic. I live in the UK. It is a RHD. It is a dream car, impeccably maintained. During last winter, she would take time to warm up. A local garage changed the ATS liquid, filtre etc. It performed excellently. Coming winter, it has started behaving similarly. Oh yes, the milometre stands at 154,342 Miles / 248336 km.
My email:
I often drive to Sweden, at least once a year. It is a great great country with really great people to be with.

TheSolidPlaya: yeah I just changed my lightbulb and lightbulb igniter and my headlight still is not working, saab sucks, thank god the engine is alright, but i am not looking forward to getting a ticket

bobbyhosweden: Underbart att se någon byta Zenonlampor med trädgårdshanskar! =)

Morradiercab: Let me start of by showering you with some well deserved praise for the collection of DIY videos on the topic of Saabs. I have only had mine for about 6 months, and although it seems like a well maintained object considering it has seen salty Norwegian roads since its completion, I have already run into what seems like 'Saab problems'; flickering HID lights, a massively malfunctioning Coolant By-Pass Valve which has seen me refill the coolant tank 8 times in two days, and no option as regards to streaming my music (except a lousy adapter) are the main ones. So far your channel has been able to help me out with each and every one of the issues at hand!
These bulbs sure are expensive, but I will get right on ordering a set. Do you know if I will be able to follow this guide from start to finish even if I have the 2.2 TID engine in contrast to yours?

Thanks again!
Also I feel it is worth mentioning that besides these annoying issues I have run into, the 9-5 (at least '02-'05) seems like a really good and reliant vehicle! Surely a buy I will not regret and a great first impression of Saab.

noisephreak21: Thanks for the video! really helpful ... any tips on how to remove the replace the side headlamp?

Allan Brallan: Hej. Hur byter man ut parkeringsljusen då? Skulle tacksamt behöva råd med mina prinskorvar till fingrar....

Samuel Howe: Helped out a lot thank you

Kjetil Torvik: Thank you for sharing. I have been looking for an easy-to-understand-video. :-)

Emiroj: Tjena Joakim! Jag tänkte fråga om du vet ifall det är möjligt att köra en vanlig glödlampa i xenonlyktan? (alltså att man kopplar från ballasterna, och givarna) och sedan bara köper en adapter som gör att h7 glödlamporna får samma fäste som d1s xenonen. Då borde det ju gå att koppla in allt, men vet inte hur en h7 står sig med en projektor! :) Hade det bara i tanken och tänkte kolla om du vet?

kyojitsu1: Great video - but cars from 2006 differ somewhat. I followed your instructions to get to the bulbs (really helpful) but it turns out the newer headlamps don't use a simple clip like in your car. It's a really awkward metal spring 'claw' that grips the bulb body on 4 sides. Getting it out is tough because there's so little room to grip it. Once out, it's tricky putting back the new bulb correctly as it has to be perfectly square on the the 'claw' and you need quite a bit of even pressure. If you get it wrong then you can bend the claws - especially on the MAF side where there's less room. If it's not correctly seated, you lose tons of light inside the reflector. I'm going to have to remove the headlight to do this properly I think. SO FRUSTRATING!!

adrian muresan: Hi Jhonnatan,(hope I spelled it correctly), thanks for the video and the radio tip at the end. I have the same car but a 2003 model,still runs great with 95000 miles on it. I live in Chicago by the way. I have a question for you. My car when it gets colder outside, let's say below 60-55 F or I guess 10 C , the suspension creaks or makes noises, or something from the suspension, not sure what it is or what component, but only when it's colder outside. During the summer no issues. I was wondering if you experienced the same issues? Any input is greatly appreciated!(subscribed:)

thebunnyrules: Thanks brother! Really appreciate it.

Örjan gellerstedt: Jag hade helt missat det där med tidsinställningen från radion! Står inte med i min manual men funkar fint! Svårjobbat med trädgårdshandskar ;-D

Лана Беленькая: На счет окрашивания волос,я тебя,Таня,понимаю..Этот оттенок красив только на фото и если бы он равномерно окрасил все волосы.По себе знаю-цвет пятнами.Перед всегда берется хорошо,сзади получается более желтое относительно челки.Смывается,в принципе,быстро.Так что если каждый день мыть да еще и маски для волос применять(маски смывают цвет),то можно обойтись без спеца.Я часто экспериментируют с покрасками и до сих пор не могу понять какой же оттенок мне больше всего идет)
