    2008 9-3 driver's door lock

    Can anyone confirm if it's necessary to use Tech2 after installing a new door lock assembly? Also, the latch on offer at esaabparts.com, part #12803474, has a 7 pin connector whereas my original is 4. It is listed on esaabparts.com as an "alternate" number. Anyone have any insight?

    The door lock installs without programming. Some of the door locks can be retrofitted. You can call Matt at esaabparts to confirm. Good luck.

    Thanks for the tip, Matt was awesome. Emailed him and this was his reply:
    "The reason 12803474 is an "alternate" part is that Saab cannot get 12759689 anymore. 12803474 is technically the European lock, which will have additional pins for the TSL locking systeming that US cars do not have. These pins will just exist on the lock, but will not be used (same connector plugs right on and the other required pins exist and are in the correct positions). So it will work all the same on US cars."
    So, question answered.
