    Hi... My heater matrix appears to have failed on me this afternoon. No prior symptoms, all the temperatures/blower functions previously working fine..... And then suddenly i had no blowers, a windscreen dripping with condensation, steam coming from everywhere - vents, speakers grilles etc, and...

    The heater started making a sweet sickly smell so I changed the matrix last week. I used the technique in saab9000.com, where you move the air con box out of the way slightly to get the blower out. It was still a dog of a job - and re-tightening the hose clips on the matrix was a challenge...

    Driving down from Scotland yesterday I had a bit of a shock, there was a bang and lots of smoke poured out of every vent in the dashboard filling the car in a few seconds, luckily I was able to pull over before I lost all vision. I realised within a couple of seconds that it was steam and not...

    Hi all We recently acquired a '97 2.0CSE LPT Anniversary that we are running as a stopgap second car (first car is a 9-5 Aero) over winter. So far we've had to top up the coolant three times and recently noticed the passenger front footwell carpets were wet. Something was ringing a bell about a...

    Hi, I've had the joy of changing the heater matrix twice now and still have a slight coolant smell coming through into the cabin. The last change was about 6 mths ago - so it's had plenty of time to burn off any residual coolant. When changing, the coolant pipes were a nightmare to reconnect...

    1996 2.0 LPT matrix and blower assembly changed today [fingers now shredded!] That part was done ok. Now when the aircon or the rad fan kicks the idle goes very low and some times will stall. MAP sensor and ECU were disconnected. Everything reconnected as should be, vacuum hoses checked all ok...

    I've got a bit of dampness in the passenger footwell - i presume the heater matrix is leaking as there is a slight tinge of antifreeze to it. Its not serious at the moment ( nothing is steaming up etc ). I am loath to spend any more money on the car than I have to - would putting in Radweld (...

    A huge thanks to all who helped out with my wet, ponging Aero recently. Just replaced the heater matrix (all by myself ) So no more wet carpets, bad smells, check radiator signs etc. Took me just over 3 hours. But I did it. And with only one plaster needed on my fingers. So thanks again...
