Question about 2004 Saab 9-3
Hi there i'm trying to replace my paking light bulb and its so awkward to get to it, I can see it can't manage to reach it, any suggestions please without taking out the headlight itself out, any advise would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
I replaced my parking light bulb in about a minute. You just have to pull the cables. Believe me, this is the procedure stated in my SAAB repair manual. Those cables are reinforced, don't worry. To tell the truth a would have not done that if I hadn't seen it in the manual . Contact me and I can send you the diagram with the step by step directions. firstname.lastname@example.org

I had trouble changing the parking light bulb on my 2004 saab 9-3 and the saab dealer wouldn't tell me how to do it. I found Fabian Romero's advice (above) very helpful and after removing the high beam light bulb , I just pulled on the re-enforced wires of the parking light and it came right out. I then changed both my bulbs successfully !!

In my case, I just pull out from front.
It was easy. Do not open hood.
It is installed with plastic latch.
Just push one side(from front to rear direction of car),
then you can open the light housing.
Then hold light assembly and turn housing 20~45 degree.
Housing will be separated from light assembly.

The front parking lights are secured by a single screw that is shared by the headlight assembly at the frontmost corner of the car. It is a Torx (T25 or T27, can't remember). If you remove this screw and carefully lift it out so it does not fall somewhere you will never find it, you should be able to pull the parking light forward and away from the fender enough to remove it. Now you can access the bulbs at your leisure.
