Saturday August 30 2014 Hi !
I'm deeply endebted to Mark Dales for providing this information and giving me permission to publish it here. He installed a Parrot bluetooth kit in his Saab 93, and had the foresight to not only document what he did, but also photograph it! Well done, and thanks Mark - a great contribution to all saab 93 owners!
Note that the "Saab Tel1 - Parrot Cable" referred to can be obtained from www.justcarkits.co.uk - this is a specific converter cable that saves you making up your own by cutting and splicing other cables.
The remainder of this article is in Mark's own words:
What you’ll need:
• Parrot CK3100 bluetooth kit
NB: As I’m English don’t forget we drive on left (RHD), so pics will be wrong way round for LHD cars.
Push passenger seat fully to rear, this exposes a torx screw fixing the bottom side panel. Undo this and remove panel, push to front of car and down a bit, should be easy enough.
This exposes a big empty space just made for fitting something like the parrot kit!
I found easiest method of getting cable to driver zone was through where ash-try should be (this is now an optional extra in UK so not fitted). Sorry about the bad photo but I didn’t check quality when doing install.
The control box-LCD connector was a bit big, so I removed the back of the LCD and unplugged the cable using tweezers. Another bad photo!
Reassembled LCD, mounted one of the supplied brackets to LHS of ash tray area.
