    Trailer Hitch for 09' SS?

    Anybody know what the options are here? I believe I can get one from the dealer. Are there aftermarket companies that offer them as well?
    And would XWD require a different one? IOW, will an 08' application work for the XWD 09's?

    I have ordered from etrailer before when I needed one for my 2005 9-5. They list 2 for the 2009 9-3:

    They have installation videos on that site as well.

    Good find Wulf. However looks like they don't offer one for the Aero or XWD versions as they both have dual exhausts and the notes say NOT for dual exhausts.
    I called them and they don't have one which is too bad as these models will be getting more popular.

    Saab USA lists part number 32026048 for all 9-3 sedans and it sells for $204 here:

    Installation of the Saab trailer hitches always seem to be more involved than aftermarket but the construction seems better as well. I added the towbar install instructions here so you can see how it is done.

    Hey, all! I just ordered a trailer hitch and wiring harness for mine from FCP for less than $200 w/ free shipping. I looked on ebay and other sites; i.e., etrailer. My Saab takes the Curt Model #11326 and the Curt Model #56146 converter wiring kit. I went to the Curt website to confirm the info. The Saab Site sells an OES (original equipment specs) version for $219. However, no wiring harness. Also, all models that fit my car need to have some of the fascia trimmed where the hitch protrudes down from the mounting point, even Saab manufactured hitches. It is not to allow the receiver to be mounted onto the hitch. Just thought I'd share the info.
