    2011 9-5 Rear Trunk Lid Light Bar Failure

    Hi I have a 2011 9-5 Turbo 4 Premium. The light bar across the top of the trunk is failing, very very dim and right side out completly. Does anyone know of a fix and/or a part number, I am afraid that as these are LED's I am going to have to replace the whole strip.

    Thanks!!

    Unfortunately, I know two others in the same predicament and the fix was to replace the whole strip.

    If you had a wagon I would be able to help you out as I have a spare LED brake light for a wagon.... Seek out a nice used one my friend. There is no known fix unless you are good with circuit boards and solder.

    Except I think he's asking about a 2011 9-5, for which light bars are available to swap out. Saab of Memphis quoted me just under $500 for the entire light bar and the part was available. That was about 6 weeks ago. Cheers.

    Oh - I do not think the 2011 part was specified earlier Makes sense now. And yes - there are a few "2011 9-5 Wagons" just not sure of the count.... none were released for sale in the US

    None of the NG9-5 Combis were ever sold anywhere in the world, they were all either prototypes or pre-production models.

    Crack it open and resolder the LEDS and reseal with silcon?

    Similar problem here, but not as bad yet.

    Two of the leds, just left of center have failed in mine. I had assumed you could just swap out the bulbs. Disappointing that isn't an option
