|21/11/2005 17:12:05||tom||can anyone tell me if the rear lights from any saab 96 will fit any year? did they ever change? Am hoping to fit earlier lights to my 1976 96.
|21/11/2005 21:20:41||Alex||I think the bigger lights that were used in the last few years (starting ± 1977/'78 if I'm not mistaking) don't fit on earlier years. The shape of the "glass" is different, at least at the bootlid side. Saying this I am presuming that the wings have the silhouette of the lights stamped in the same way as the earlier versions have.|
|21/11/2005 21:26:08||jake||the rear lights on the 96 is a very simple afair and is held in place by just a couple of little bolts the hole asembly is just a small bracket with a reflector atached onto which the lens is held by two set screws the seal is mantained by a rubber gasket held firmly against the wing panel it is just about the most basic setup you could have and i don't see any problems in fitting them from whatyear did you have in mind? all the best jake|
|21/11/2005 23:26:03||Alistair||Should be fine on a 76, no change from 66-76 IIRC.|
|22/11/2005 10:23:34||tom||atcually the ones i am looking at are for a 60-64 model, i take this is too early? is a shame as they look really nice!
|22/11/2005 14:51:07||Alistair||Those early two stroke ones will be a little different, though I think they should physically fit. Might be only red lenses, so not sure about the legality for indicators?
Someone else is bound to know for sure...
|22/11/2005 17:16:55||mark||The t/s ones besides been not legal. need a 2 bulb holder the brake light is the same as the indicator The larger unit do fit I have them on my 1972 96|
|22/11/2005 19:35:10||ian||tried my best to get the early ones to fit my 66 longnose but they are very different...i think it could be done but its a big job and they dont look right as the rear wings are a different cut out|
