I noticed streaking on the windshield of my '08 9-5 last week when the wipers were operating. Time for replacements. I knew I replaced the wipers on my wife's 9-3SC at the same time these were replaced previously, and that I had one heck of a time finding the correct passenger side wiper for her car.
Luckily the search function on the 9-3SS board found my old posts from 2017, and the string included wiper P/N's for my 9-5 as well as numbers for my wife's 9-3SC.
After checking multiple sources I found the pricing is no worse than I remembered, but some traditional sources have extremely high prices for these, or sell only by the 10-pack, or for some reason do not list these part numbers as fitting SAAB cars.
For the curious:
2008 9-5 - Valeo #574657, set of two wipers
2006 9-3 Driver - Valeo #800-23-9, one wiper with long wing
2006 9-3 Passenger - Valeo #800-22-3, one wiper w/o wing
Total cost for these four wipers was ~$48 before shipping. One source wanted $60 just for the 9-5 wipers! So check many e-tailers.
A big thanks to Anders for the knowledge he shared back in 2017 of the Valeo P/N for the SAAB identical wiper sold for Volvo use!
