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

The SID can have a couple of problems. If your LCD is missing pixels, you can go to this website for some repair parts pixelfix.net/eng/saab.html If just your buttons are unlit, then you can replace the bulbs. There are 3 bulbs for the SID, so even though you may have two buttons out, you may only need one new bulb.

Part # Component
40-87-482 SID Light Bulb
48-68-725 ACC Light Bulb


SID Light Bulbs

To remove the SID, you simply pull it out. I use a small screwdriver to get one side started and then I pull out the other side until I can grab the whole unit with my hand. Once you pull it out, disconnect the plug and you will have access to the bulbs.

To remove the bulb, just use a small screwdriver and turn it 1/2 turn counter clockwise.  Insert in the new bulb, turn it 1/2 turn clockwise, plug the SID back in and push it back into the slot.  It should take about 5 minutes.









ACC Light Bulbs

Replacing the ACC bulbs is pretty much exactly like the SID. There are 4 bulbs that can be replaced.

To remove the ACC, you simply pull it out. I use a small screwdriver to get one side started and then I pull out the other side until I can grab the whole unit with my hand. Once you pull it out, disconnect the plug and you will have access to the bulbs.

To remove the bulb, just use a small screwdriver and turn it 1/2 turn counter clockwise.  Insert in the new bulb, turn it 1/2 turn clockwise, plug the ACC back in and push it back into the slot.  It should take about 5 minutes.
