Gary, I have a "brand new" 2001 9-5 Aero 5-speed. I don't think it has the automatic rain sensing wipers, maybe it does? Anyway, one way to go is just stop by Wally World and get the $2.44 each wipers. At that price they don't have to last 3 years! I find even good wipers don't last here in Colorado so I've decided on cheap ones. You can even carry spairs in the trunk. BTW, do you belong to the Rocky Mountain SAAB Club?
