Wanted:Black side skirt rubber trim

I'm missing one of them long rubber trim piece that sits along the length of the side skits and the body. I need a black one, the part is around $5 new but both Essab and Saabparts have been back ordered on them for ever. I purchased a silver one thinking I'd paint it but that's just not a good solution. Perhaps one of you guys that parted a car has them. Thanks.

Re: Wanted:Black side skirt rubber trim

Hey thanks man, I was going to walk into my local Subaru dealer with the one I have and ask if the have a similar one. The amazing part here is that the one I have is new, from esaabparts and it cost less than $5. The problem is they only had 1 black piece left in stock. The part shows up on their page as on order but when I inquire about it, they don't know when or if they will have them again.

99% of dealership parts counter employees will not care if you have the part or not, because they have to look up parts based on VIN or year/model and then if they can find the part in the series of categorized diagrams.
also they will not likely have it in stock, because it will be in the warehouse and they'll have to order it.
Don't bother bringing the part in
i already gave you the Subaru part number

i suppose there is an off chance there is a Saab dealership that has one in stock, however that would be sheer dumb luck if you found it

Re: Wanted:Black side skirt rubber trim

I'm lucky the local Subaru dealer parts guys are cool. I walked in today with the part number you provided me with and the part I have just in case my lucky stars were all in alignment. As it turns out my star misalignment is still in full effect. They just ordered the part and said they would return it if its not the correct part, thank you sir.

Jim, I'm actually going to North Shore Saab Thursday to have the air bag recall taken care of, I'm curious to see what they have going on there. They have also been a Honda dealership, I suspect there will be nothing but Honda vehicles and a few leftover Saab, I'll take pictures.

Re: Wanted:Black side skirt rubber trim

Cool!  See if they have any of the final generation 9-5s  If I were younger, I'd buy one of those on spec as a collectible, they are extremely rare.  We lost the Boulder dealer in 2013

Well, no trace of any Saab vehicles at North Shore Saab, it's all Honda vehicles. They have a small counter for Saab service, that's all that is left of the Saab brand here.
