    Question Trunk Mounted Light Socket Replacement Inquiry!

    Where can I find a replacement light socket (passenger side) for my reverse lights? I replaced the bulb yesterday, but no joy, the light wont come on when I am in reverse. I found a replacement socket for the body on eEuroparts, but not the trunk. I looked on eBay but nothing on there either. Does anyone know of a retailer anywhere? Thanks!

    If you haven't already tried Saab Parts USA I would go there, but it may be more expensive. I always go to salvage yards to get things like that because it keeps the cost of repairs down. If you can find one in your area its probably worth a look.

    Did you test to see if the socket is getting current. My guess is that your wires between the body and the lid are broken. Very common issue.
