Forum rules


When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.


Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Hi there SAAB maniacs. I am about to install an aftermarket sound sys and need to dismantle the dash to put in 2 upper speakers. Of course they are bigger and need to make them volumes so I got to remove the dash. I can find info about the plastic panel, grilles and everything in front but can you tell a hint for the upper part under the glass? The 9000's dash is easy to remove but 9-5's?
Thanks.

Removing the dashboard in the 9-5 is a major operation. It's all in one piece.

You have to remove everything, including the centre tunnel framework, before it comes out.

Speakers and grilles
Solar sensor/alarm red light
Glovebox and undertray, including the footwell lights
Data connector and undertray, ditto lights
Radio
SID
Aircon
Dash front panel
Instrument panel
Steering wheel and airbag
Fusebox
Gear selector panel, locking switch and ashtray
Side trims on the centre tunnel
Ignition switch aerial
Rear of centre tunnel including remote receiver.
Top from of centre tunnel.

Maybe some other bits.

Then the bolts holding the dashboard...

Yes. It is a big job taking the dash out of a 9-5.
Done it twice.

I've just done it tonight to put a carbon dash in, assumed 15 minute job, an hour and half later...

Now the Aircon has a blank screen so onto the next thing to chew up my time when I have none! :)

Good luck

That’s just the dash fascia panel, not the whole dashboard. :)
