If it stops working it is not because the wire breaks, but the connection to the thermostat that is in series with the two heater elements. The heater wire is folded between two layers of plastic webbing, between the foam seat filler and the cloth upholstery, but no longer available for SAAB 95/96. It is my experience that it can be fixed just by making new connections to the thermostat. -- MH ('77 96 '78 95 '79 96) Remove NOSPAM from E-mail address.
