It's in the manual. Same for every car... but no one looks there. There's a ring you have to turn to release the assembly from the light, then a metal clip that unsnaps to release the bulb. The wires are removed by sliding the red clip about 5mm out and then gently wiggling off. You can use a screwdriver to help remove the wires but if this is your first time with a Saab connector, go slow until you learn how they work. Don't touch the business end of the new bulb at any time - hold it only by the base.
