Saab 9-3 Antenna & Trunk Prop Replacement

Saab 9-3 Antenna & Trunk Prop Replacement

Replacing the radio antenna and hatch door trunk prop gas struts on an 2006 Saab 9-3 SportCombi. The note that gas struts are different for the sport sedan version, and the radio antenna have several variants.

SportCombi Trunk Props:
Saab OEM: #12778556

Radio Antenna:
OEM (Correct connector): 12756410
— I believe this has been superseded by #12762120
OEM (Wrong connector): 12762121

Great information. I just replaced mine shock. I have 2010 93 SC. I have regular radio and no On Star. My dummy antenna's seal is broken long time ago, and I don't find any water sign inside. It is just eyesore to look at.

Dan Robinson says:

Just got a 9-3 sportcombi and need to replace the antenna. This is a life saver! Any tips on how to get the rear wiper fluid jet to work?

My service guy at Saab repair told me that this is not radio antenna, it is for GPS. It it true?

I have a 2008 Combi 2.0T wagon and I replaced the hatch shocks on both sides. This video is really instructive, but I would add that I had to raise the hatch as far as I could be be able to push the shock on. I put the front end of the shock on first, followed by the back end. Propping up the hatch with a recycling container really helps too!

I have 2010 Combi 2.0T. I thought I have the dummy antenna. There are window antenna on the side. Thanks for the video to replace the shock. Mine just went out recently.
