    2007 9-5 Sedan 2.3t Front springs and struts

    While replacing a fender that was run into by a deer, I noticed something that looked funny. Upon closer inspection, I found that my spring on the drivers side had broken at the base. Trying to find replacement springs and noticed on Eeurparts, the springs are apparently color coded to vehicle. Can anyone tell me how to determine which are the correct springs for my vehicle? Will probably replace the struts while I have them apart. Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated.

    I think that if you contact an approved parts source with the VIN they will be able to provide the correct parts. Saabparts.com might be a good place to start.

    Thanks Geoff. I tried that, but that gives four choices:

    Tan/red. Code cv. Red/white. Yellowith red.
    Code cw. Red/white.
    Code he. Blue/tan. White, blue. Blue, yellow. Orange/blue (code ga).
    Code hf. Blue/red.

    Not sure how to decode that. I assume that the springs would be the same left or right, but some of the SaabParts sites list only left with these descriptions.

    The information will be on a data plate somewhere on the car but I can't look because mine is an NG 9-5.
