Take a small flat head tech screw driver or a small plastic wedge and be very careful. You have to work it out. Look at the new one to see how it secures itself.

I would suggest you remove the dash light dimmer control rheostat (In most cases part of the main headlight switch) and test it for continuity, I think it may be defective, please perform the testing before replacing any parts.

If you already have the switch out, go ahead and replace it. the carbon brush that changes the resistance for dimming is old (1997). Test by one lead on your meter to the brush. The other lead to the large terminal on the rheostat coil. Rotate the shaft to see if resistance varies.

Try jiggling your cluster light dimmer and see if they come on for a second or 2. If that's the case replace the whole switch and rheostat.

Your Saab does not have a timing belt, it has a chain. You need to remove the chain tensioner and see how much it has extended. If it has plenty yet to go, your chain is fine to go more miles. If it is fully extended or nearly so, you are on borrowed time.
