DIY: A sunglasses holder in the Saab 9-5NG

Saab 9-5 NG sunglasses holder

Our Saab friend Markus Olsson sent us his new video in which he shows how to add a very practical sunglasses holder in the Saab 9-5NG. Although there are plenty of compartments in Saab 9-5NG that can be used for the disposal of sunglasses, he manufacturer did not anticipate a special compartment for the disposal of (sun)glasses.

Since Saab shares the platform with other similar cars from GM’s portfolio (in this case Saab 9-5NG-Opel Insignia), many parts are interchangeable. GM Part number is 13325747 (Opel No. 1740006), and and this part goes to the roof handle position above the driver’s door.

No more hassle. You will always know where they are and reach them fast!
