    First thing to do is run a diagnostic check on the ACC panel and then look up the fault codes
    Press ACC + OFF at the same time with the system running.
    The SID will show if you have any faults, the left gives the number of faults
    and the right side will give the code number.

    I dont have a list of fault codes but they will be in your manual.
    If you dont have a manual you can get a pdf one below

    Thanks mate, but I do not have an 'ACC' button only an 'auto' button I tried the auto button with the 'off' button and nothing happened but it switched off.

    Shouldnt be too bad -its a common fault with the internal blend doors and/or shaft.

    This might be what you need

    Glad to help - usually the kits crop up on Ebay and I believe partsforsaab do them here in the uk
    Not sure about OZ though.........

    The instructions below look fairly good.

    HI, Pretty sure it is the blend box lever. Having read some old posts that said it would cost around 2K plus i was worried. Just rang kieth Mccrackem motors here in Perth they quoted me.....wait fo it...........$120 or 66 pounds!!!!
    if it were not for these guys I would not own a saab. Tanks for setting me right CJ.

    Just repaired the AC on mine just in time for summer. Front seat passengers starting to cook. Easy fix for me no parts needed,just the motor cogs needed tapping in so they re align with the actuator. Easy fix in the end.
