Dear All, You'll have seen my whinges about the cost of spares for my '89 9000S from Saab. I did some phoning around today, and although there are no breakers' yards around here with Saabs in, I was given a telephone number for a second-hand parts sourcing company. Within a couple of hours they had located the parts I require, and these will be delivered to my door early next week. Central locking Motor (n/s/r door): Saab price (new): GBP95 + VAT; their price (used): GBP25 + VAT Sunroof switch: Saab price (new): GBP38 + VAT; their price GBP15 + VAT. They tried to soak me on delivery charges, but I talked them down to a fiver. Total saving: GBP103.41 (or 66%), including delivery. If you are looking for second-hand parts, it might be worth your while giving these people a try. The telephone number is 01302 772277.
