Question about 2005 Saab 9-2X
How do i gain access to the bulb, i have no manual.
Gar' - I've had the low beams on my wife's '05 9-3 go out a number of times (very frustrating), so have figure this one out. You'll need to remove the battery cover to be able to get access to the back to the HL assembly. Once you have that off, you'll see a rubber boot in line with the LB lens/reflector assy., BUT to get your hand in there, you'll need to remove the windshield washer fluid filler tube, just pull up on this, (comes out easily), set aside. NOW, you can get to the rubber boot - looks like a rubber jar lid. Pull this off, reach in and you'll feel the lamp retainer/clip thing. This will need to be twisted counter clockwise (anti-clockwise in the UK, I think ;) ) , twist, pull out, replace bulb, reverse process. WARNING - edges are sharp, space is tight, but gloves are impractical because you'll have to feel around for the bulb assy., so be careful, that said, I use surgical gloves to keep my hands clean and keep from touching the bulb. Standard warnings regarding the touching the lamps with your bare fingers (DON'T), use a cloth or surgical gloves. Hope that helps. I originally found this information on the web, so a search may get you a video or photos of the situation.
