    After much screwy-ness with my lights, and having the fault light on the dash for months, I finally bit the bullet and bought both the front and rear sensor. I have a question though. Do I need to immediately have them calibrated on TechII? Also, does anyone know how much that will cost? I tried calling all of the local Saab shops and none of them answered...not a good sign.

    Yes, you should have them calibrated after the install otherwise you may still get the headlamp leveling malfunction warning. I had to go in two or three times and do the calibration procedure after I replaced my front sensor.

    Um if I had to guess, I'd say 50-100 bucks... I didn't pay for it since I'm a Saab tech and have my own Tech 2.
