I think I can help with that. (My guess is that it is the same as the 9-5). Behind the radio is a chassis mounted connector. You need to purchase a wiring harness from Saab (mine cost about 10 GB pounds ). This has a connector that fits the chassis mounted one, and the other end is unterminated wire that you need to fix up to your hands-free car unit. The Aerial lead also lives behind the radio - mine was taped up tidily with masking tape. This connector won't fit your phone directly, but also needs to go to the hands-free unit. The other end of the antenna lead (i think) lives behind the rear interior light housing. You might also want to consider buying the plastic moulding that your phone will sit in/on. It is available from www.saabcatalog.com but I think it is ugly and unnecessarily large. I bought the official Nokia holder, which surprisingly enough is made from a very similar grey plastic to that used for the Saab Radio panel; it matches perfectly, and is a far more elegant design. Good luck. Simon Watkins JBurten <jburtennopsamcom> wrote in message news:19991010125752.10017.00000580nopsama1.aol.com... > I am looking to install my cell phone in my 9-3.
