    Outside air temp./AC problems I have a 2006 Aero Vert with 122k miles. The AC does blow at all fan speed but not cold air. Noticed that the outside air temperature read out just shows dashes and does not show a temp. Will that effect the AC? How do I fix it if that causes probems? In...

    I have recently purchased a 2007?Saab 93 TiD Sport estate which I love but it does seem to have a few 'quirks' with the auto air con which I cannot seem to fathom, despite reading the handbook, & wondered if anyone can explain.... Whenever I start the engine the fan goes to maximum, with air con...

    Hello. I just drove about 50000km since I fitted a Pipercross air filter and though it was about time (3 years have passed) to clean it up. When I got if off, this was what I found, although it seems to be working fine. Should I worry? Pictures in attach. In the meantime I cleaned it with C9000...

    I've found this site helpful over the years I've owned a Saab 9-3, so i thought I'd share the issue I have been have with the brakes on the Saab and the eventual (cheapish) fix. Over the last 14 months or so I was having issues with the brakes being spongy I swapped the master cylinder but...

    Hi. Could anyone help me understand why when i have the aircon on in my 2005 9.3 on the heater setting to clear the windscreen it only blows cool air out even when the engine has had time to warm up. The setting is on max on both sides but the airflow isn't warm.:mad:

  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    My 1999, 4 cylinder 9-5 is only sending hot air to the windshield. I cannot get the hot air to flow to the front foot wells or to the driver and passenger vents when they are selected. My SID is working fine and was rebuilt by BBA one year ago. Any idea as to what is not working properly? Is...

    I bought a new secondary air pump and want to replace it. I know I need to change the check valve too. Where is the pump located? Any tips? How easy is this job? Thanks.

  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hey, I just had a leaking hose replaced and my air con regased on a 1993/1994 SAAB 9000 CD. The air con has not been used for a couple of years as it has not been working. Is there a cabin air filter? Should I replace it? Cheers.
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Yes thats right.9-5 Aero 2005. The Air Con compressor as ground it's way through the Aluminium pipe just in front of it. I'm guessing it's when I accelerate and the engine has too much movement. New left hand mount (as you look at the car). I have noticed the toque rod bush is very worn...

    When pressing the air recirculator button nothing happens. When I turn it off all I hear is a clicking noise (presumably a cog has stripped itself as it did in another car of ours). How easy is it to replace broken cog in air recirculator unit? And is it easily accessible?

    hi, so, i cant make out if the air con compressor is on when the green light is on, or off with green light on, as the green light (led) is next to where it says off on the button! also, i cant tell because it just doesnt get cold at all! is there a fuse for it? the cars only done 28,000 miles...

    Hiya, MY2002 Aero yesterday I caught a whiff of coolant whilst driving, no other indications or problems. Today tho, no hot air at all thru the vents on any setting. The car is not overheating (9 O clock on the temp gauge). Had a quick look under bonnet all I could see was a slim pipe (shreider...

    Why is it that sometimes when I switch my air conditioning on I get a wee smell for about 20 seconds.I always have to explain to my passengers that is not me lol. Do i have a dead rat under the bonnet or is the airconditioning gas that needs replacing.
