    Part numbers for Carbon Fiber interior door pulls

    Alright 9-5 friends, here's the scoop. I was able to pick up a pair of the Genuine Saab Accessory Carbon Fiber interior door pulls for a 9-5, (not the chincy stateofnine overlays.) They were the last set in the North American Warehouse of Saab Cars NA. The problem is, they are only the pair for the rear doors and they had none for the fronts. I have a friend in Sweden trying to track these down for me but if anyone could chime in and tell me if A. they were available on the European market and B. provide me with some Swedish part numbers (the longer ones that generally start with a 400) it would be really helpful. I tried running the US part numbers through Saabs Swedish part number reference library in Saab Iris, but it came back with nothing. Gave me the Swedish number for everything else that I already have haha. Anyways. Any help/input would be greatly appreciated. (Maybe someone has a European Accessory book?) For those who don't know what it is I'm looking for, use Wulf's first interior shot as a reference. His '01 9-5 Arc was fitted with the same pulls, only they were wood finished. Thanks in advance! http://saabworld.net/f9/show-your-saab-9-5-dash-2218/

    Any luck with this? The EPC only shows beige and grey handles but I am sure you already knew that. I have never seen the wood handles either besides the ones I had on my 2001 9-5. Those felt like solid wood.

    Frank, at this point I'm about ready to end the search, my lady friend in Sweden has checked with both her local dealer and ANA and called a friend who works at Saab with no luck. I suspect, that these, along with the carbon fiber steering wheel were something cooked up by Saab USA and wont be found anywhere else. I did a quick read up on one of the forums and someone said that they were so expensive to manufacture that the wood ones were discontinued after only a year or two for sale, the carbon fiber ones were stopped sometime later and that only rears were available for the last year or two (why only rears were available is beyond me, you would think they would've just sold the pulls as a set of 4.) I guess I will just tuck the pair that I have away with my extra carbon fiber dash/shifter plate/shift lever... Maybe I'll get lucky on one of my visits out to Goldwing or one of the local pick and pulls and find a set of them pre-enjoyed.

    It looks like these are for the rear doors, right? This is actually the first picture I have seen of these CF pulls.

    Frank, I don't know how you found those, but thanks for sharing, I just bought both sets. Looking at the stock handles in my wagon I'm wondering what the difference between fronts and rears are? Thanks again!

    I just searched for " Saab 9-5 door pulls" and these were the only ones that came up. You could set up a saved search on eBay so you'll get an automated email in case something is listed.

    This is a picture of the wood pulls. The front and rear are different and they seem larger for the front doors.

    Well, I guess that answers that. My thought was maybe modifying one set to fit the fronts. But the other nice thing was that the ebay link provided a reference part number that I have never seen before. Time to hop on the Saab 'secure' server...

    I received both sets of the carbon fiber door pulls that I got on ebay finally. Sure enough, two more sets of rear pulls. After a lot of searching around I was put in touch with a company in Germany that apparently was the wood/carbon fiber dash supplier for Saab through the 1980s and '90s. I've corresponded via email with the owner who said that he could easily make reproduction front pulls to match the NOS rears that I have. So we have worked a deal and I will be sending him one set of the rears to use/retain as reference for making the fronts of which I'm going to have two pairs made. The price is steep at about $300 for a pair, but I have serious doubts about finding a mint-used set anytime soon.

    Any more information on the Front pulls? I just purchased the rear pulls and would LOVE to have the Fronts to match.
