More time consuming than anything else. Best parts, IMHO, would be new parts from Townsend Imports (, but you might also check a couple wrecking yards and buy used if you want to save some money. The one I know is in Sacramento, CA at 916.635.9970, but there are several other Saab-only dismantlers across the states. I would recommend buying a repair manual, while you're at it. Garry Small Saab ( sells them for about $40. The thing to remember is the 9k manual only came out in the U.K., so they are slightly pricier than your run of the mill Haynes manual, as they must be imported. Also, it's worth noting that the Haynes manual is the *only* repair manual besides the official factory one - Robert Bentley was supposed to publish one, but they never did. -Justin
