Question about 2000 Saab 9-3 Viggen
My problem is where to get a replacement 3 point harness,and how difficult the job is. also if anyone knows whether the dealers would do the repair on an 8 year old vehicle for reduced price due to the re-call issue i keep reading about. regards
I just ordered one for a clients 02 9-3 Vert. It cost $400 brand new. be careful getting used units as used usually means the vehicle was in an accident. These cars have a pretension system in the belts which can only be used once. After an accident, the belts are usually junk and will set the airbag light off.

Tips for a great answer:
Please check if your seat belt has "Retractors" or "Automatic Retractor".
Follow these steps to determine if you have a retractor system that will hold car seat securely or your seat belt won't retract as should be:
A. Pull belt all the way out.
b. Allow belt to retract about 6 inches (15 cm).
c. Pull out on belt again.
If belt is locked and you cannot pull the belt out any further, you have an Automatic Locking;
If you pull the belt again all the way out and won't return to normal operation, then the mechanism is damaged, but try first the "retractor" lock to be sure. By Federal Law, nobody will sale a seat belt in a junk yard, try the dealer or order thru the dealer the whole seat belt or the mechanism. I hope that is just a matter of the automatic retractor; you can see this information in your car's manual. Try and we will see.
