Talk to Steve Lewis at http://www.carleatherdye.com

Steve is a Saab nut and supplies the correct colours! :)

Relatively easy as it's not ripped or split. As above talk to Steve.

"Parchment" I think is the name of the colour. I did mine the other month. Came up OK. If you don't get it done professionally, you should do it in good daylight to get a colour match. Under artificial light is not good enough for a match for us mere mortals.

On the 9-3 the body colour code and the Trim colour code are on the label on the glovebox lid. Have a look. :)

Body colour on the 9-3SS will be around 260 - 300 or so. Trim colours are something like B02, K50 or L20.

Steve sent some parchment dye and it worked well on mine. You'll need 3 or 4 coats - make sure each dries first. Clean the leather first. I'm going to try to get in the car via the passenger seat now :) as I always 'scrape' the same bit of the side bolster at the seam (as yours) when I get in and little areas need redoing again after a year.

All the L** trim colours are "Beige"... :)

The different numbers relate to the part leather, cloth, cloth & leather, part leather, upholstery type.

Parts list.
