The installation is straightforward and easy. The first step is to remove the stereo, which varies slightly between 9-3 and 9-5. For 9-5, remove the four plastic buttons and unscrew the torx heads and pull the stereo outwards. For 9-3, remove the vent above the stereo and unscrew the torxs, lift the stereo slightly upwards and pull it out. Once the stereo is removed, xConnect is installed by:

  • Remove the two black plastic connectors from the back of the stereo.
  • Place the two black connectors from xConnect where you just removed the connectors. Connectors will only fit at the right place.
  • Install the two connectors initially removed from the stereo in the connectors of xConnect. Connectors will only fit at the right place.
  • Put the xConnect behind the stereo and push the stereo back to where it was.
  • Test xConnect by pairing to SAAB BLUE. Press the radio button once or twice to get into xm-band. Play a song on your phone and it should work as expected.
  • Reassembly everything.
