Forum rules


When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the post subject/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.**

I've an original Saab Clarion radio cassette head unit in my 9000 (the one with the small detachable rectangular black keypad). The LCD display is all washed out - as if it is on 'above' full brightness such that the green background is the same brightness as the lettering, and you can no longer work out what the display says. The radio operates fine, but it is a matter of guesswork when it comes to using it or setting it. Is there a fix for this at all?

If all else fails, I have a radio, unused for umpteen years Saab part number 45 36 660.
It worked when replaced. Code is written on the top. Boss wanted a USB facility.
Someone might tell you if your prob can be fixed with the front removable part changed, in which case, postage a lot easier.
Good news.... free to you, postage cost required.
Bad news... it's sitting in my home in Spain.
If this becomes of interest to you, suggest postage after the Christmas traffic.

That's very kind and I'll take it please! And happy to provide a donation for your troubles. Like you suggest, happy to wait until after the Christmas rush. Will PM you later. Thanks again!
