My mechanic told me the problem I am having with left front strut is the bearing so I will need to replace both front struts as it comes in a whole assembly and cannot just replace bearing;however in Saab Central forums people have said replacing bearing alone can be done.
The new radiator part looks different, just don't know if I got the wrong part or is this new radiator updated product correct???
