Fog Lights for 85-87 US Models FOUND

Post by wogden700 » Thu Jun 18, 2020 4:08 pm

HI All. I have found a solution for those of us with these NLA foglights. It seems that Hella did in fact use these in other cars, Specifically Early Saab 9000s and 900 Aeros.
https://asaabforever.com/saab-parts/9529900-2x/ Is the full kit fior both sides. $99

I bought a pair and the lenses are a perfect fit. Even the outer retaining ring fits perfect. The screws are slightly longer, with a plastic washer, but using the washer they fit in my BMW buckets . I didn't swap out the rear buckets, but they look identical.
The only difference I could find is that these have Hella sticker in the middle of the lens. (they look removbe, but I didnt try) The wiring harness colors are different from BMW and the plug is different. Inside the lens the bulb shade that directs the light is slightly different, but it looks better than the BMW one actually.
The lenses have different Hella Part #s 1nb 004 450-16 for the Saab units versus 1nb 960 501-00 for the BMW, but are idenitcal save for the differences mentioned above.

I've tried searching for just the lenses using that Hella part #, but no luck.

The 85-87 US models should all have the same chin spoiler that takes these.
