Welcome to Just answer, the job of changing it is fairly straight forward, most garages would be able to do it in around 1 hour, however it really needs to be programmed in and only a dealer or a Bosch diesel centre will have the software for this.

This programming is necessary if using a new injector but a second hand one from Ebay wont need this as it will be worn past programming tolerances.

Parts will cost £400+ from Saab but Ebay are around £100 .

I hope this helps, best regards, vauxdoc.
