    Parking Brake Gaitor - Any ideas?

Size:  50.8 KBHello fellow Saabsters!

    I'm looking to replace or refurbish the crappy gaitor on my 9-5's parking brake. Like many, it's shedding and looks terrible!

    Does anyone have any info on the easiest way to remove it? I'm assuming the console will have to come out or the bin under the armrest at least?

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Thank you.

    I have never done this myself so can't offer any advice but here are the instructions from the WIS: Saab 9-5 - handbrake lever gaiter replacement.pdf

    Well changing the gaitor ended up being a fairly easy, if not a fiddly job. I found one in good condition from a donor car and followed the procedure in the WIS.
    Happily I can tick that job off the list!
