Hello everyone.
This is my first post of this forum, so feel free to correct me if I violate any rules.
I am currently in the process of restoring a LHD 96 for daily driving use, and it seems that I'll be needing a wiring diagram for it, as the manual's diagram isn't real helpful when rebuilding the primary wiring harness into the cab.

I've already found this diagram for a 1972 96 here, but I'm looking to restore a 1969 model with the older-style gauge & switch layout.

Welcome to the forum, it would be great to see some pics of your car when you get the chance.

Fairly sure Melle has produced a coloured wiring diagram for the 96, but I think it's for a 71 RHD 96.

You can download the '68-'73 95, 96 V4 workshop manual from here...

http://www.vintagesaabmanuals.org/1968-73-95-and-96-v4-sonett-iii.html

I think your looking at p273 on the pdf.

Let us know how you get on!

Welcome aboard FromTheKeyboard. Are you in the UK? I have LHD V4s myself and a wealth of spares if you need any.

It was green96v4 who drew up aforementioned diagram, not me: http://www.saab-v4.co.uk/speedball/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=20652&SearchTerms=diagram. It's also on my website: http://www.saabv4.com/index.php/project/wiring-diagram/

Simon, do you know who's behind vintagesaabmanuals.org? Great to see the V4 presence on the net growing slowly but steadily.

Thanks for your help Simon.
I've got a shop manual already, but neither me, or a couple of friends could figure out how one was supposed to trace wires through the harness (which seems to bundle them into one large trace), and into other components using the wiring chart.

Anyway, here are the pictures you requested. These were all taken before I pulled the engine.
