Saab is a Swedish auto manufacturer founded in 1947. The company is well-known for its history of building aircraft before producing automobiles.

Tips and warnings

  • If your antenna is still not working, it is likely a faulty antenna motor, rather than the antenna.
  • Use only Saab replacement parts to ensure compatibility.
