Hi Toby - I checked my local yards, with no luck. If you haven't sorted it yet, I'd try Europarts - they list a lot of supposedly main-agent parts, as better prices. I bought a complete headlight assembly from them that was at least a 3rd cheaper including delivery than the Saab price (100 vs 170 approx), and my local place (German and Swedish) said that they couldn't get the headlight as it was a main agent part.
