The good thing about this model SAAB is every bulb can be replaced in this car. The other good thing is that they are all pretty easy to change. The only bad thing is that the bulbs are expensive!

Some of these bulbs can be bought online and others must be bought at the dealer.
The best sources are www.thesaabsite and www.genuinesaab.com

Here is a list of the bulb part #'s and the switch they go with:

Click on the component to jump to the replacement section.
Part # Component
41-14-898 Hazard Light

44-66-439 TCS/Fog Light Switches
49-29-303 Window Switches
54-71-065 Seat Heater Switch, Seat Fan Switch, Headlight Alignment Switch (Euro cars only)


These will go through how to replace the bulbs in the switches:
Be careful with the screwdriver! You can easily scratch and dent the wood dash.


Hazard, TCS and Foglight Switch

Pull out the switch using a small screwdriver. Pull up on 1 corner and hold it with your finger and then pull up on the opposite corner.  Unplug the switch from the harness. Use a small screw driver and give the bulb a 1/2 turn counter-clockwise and remove the bulb. Insert the new bulb, give it a 1/2 turn clockwise, and put the switch back in the socket.





Window Switches

Pull out the entire window switch using a small screwdriver. Pull up from the center and gently pull the entire unit from the console.  Unplug the switch from the harness. Use a small screw driver and give the bulb a 1/2 turn counter-clockwise and remove the bulb. Insert the new bulb, give it a 1/2 turn clockwise, and put the switch back in the socket.





Seat Heater, Seat Fan, Headlight Alignment Switches

These all use the same bulbs and there are 2 bulbs per switch.  One for the numbers and one for the rotary knob.

There are two ways you can remove the switches. The easiest way is to pull out the little cubby right below the switches. Use a small screwdriver and lift it up in the center. Once the tab is released, the whole thing pulls right out.



You can also pull out the switch using a small screwdriver. Pull out 1 side and hold it with your finger and then pull on the opposite corner.  In some cases, it might be easier to remove the blank next to switch.




Remove the white shield by pulling it up. There is 1 bulb on each side of the switch. Use a small screw driver and give the bulb a 1/2 turn counter-clockwise and remove the bulb. Insert the new bulb, give it a 1/2 turn clockwise. Do this for both bulbs, replace the light shield, and put the switch back in the socket.





Headlight Switch

The headlight switch has two bulbs. Pull out the switch using a small screwdriver. Pull out 1 side and hold it with your finger and then pull on the opposite corner.

Unplug the switch by pulling up on the red tab.

Use a small screw driver and give the bulb a 1/2 turn counter-clockwise and remove the bulb. Insert the new bulb, give it a 1/2 turn clockwise. Do this for both bulbs. Reconnect the plug and put the switch back in the socket.
