2005+ SAAB 92X INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS


1. Remove the shift knob - it simply twists off.

 

Slide fingers under trim piece surrounding shift lever and pull up gently until it pops loose. Unsnap shift boot at shift knob. Using the shift boot pull boot over shift knob and lift entire assembly straight up. There is a single plug that needs to be removed that is attached to the ashtray cigarette lighter. Unplug connector and then carefully remove console.

2. There are four screws that need to be removed to remove the e-brake boot. First two are just below the climate controls, and are the bottom two screws. Next two screws are below the center console storage compartment. After removing screws pull the parking brake up unsnap the e-brake boot. At this point you will need to unplug all electrical connectors. Once they are out you can pull the console free.

3. The shift boot is held in place by a thin plastic frame. It is held in place by clips on each side of the shifter trim. Gently unclip each side and remove the shift boot and frame.

 

The boot is glued to the frame and must be pulled off. It is glued on tight!! Work carefully and use a hobby knife to remove stubborn spots.

4. The e-brake boot is held in by one clip nearest the storage compartment. Unsnap this clip and give the boot a gentle tug and it will come out. Once again the boot is glued to the frame and needs to be pulled of.

5. Now attach your new boots. Epoxy or superglue can be used, a thick slow setting superglue worked the best. Start with the shift boot and align the seams with the correct corners, narrow spacing to the rear. Work slowly gluing a small section at a time to ensure proper alignment. The e-brake boot needs to be turned somewhat inside out as shown in the photo to make is easier to glue.

6. Once you have the boots glued to the frame just reverse the removal process, and don't forget to re-connect your electrical plugs.

Armrest cover installation


The cover is installed on your stock armrest with flat elastic which goes between the two parts your stock armrest comprises. Just open the armrest, remove screws to loosen the top part, pull the armrest on it and screw it back to the bottom part - 5 minutes work in all!

\ For tight fitment, you might want to consider glueing the armrest to the inside of the top part of the armrest cover. Any quick-drying epoxy-based glue will work great along with some clamps.

\ you have the boots glued to the frame just reverse the removal process, and don't forget to re-connect your electrical plugs.

Useful tip

You have installed a product made out of genuine leather. As you know, to maintain a leather product in good condition, you should take care of it. We suggest occasionally (every 4-6 week for example) applying some leather conditioner/UV protector to keep your leather from drying up in the sun and cracking.
