Chris, Thanks! I didn't know that the changer was a Clarion. I have been dreading spending $500 at the Saab parts dept., but ordered one from Crutchfield soon after seeing your post. I got it the next day and it took 20 minutes to install! And who says the newsgroups only have flames. Thanks again.
