  1. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi Folks, I thought I'd share my experience in changing out the recirc flap motor on my 1997 9000 Anniversary. I had a couple of instances of the widscreen fogging up in cold weather and after checking this site and the position of the flap, I guessed it was the flap motor playing up. The...
  2. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi Folks, My Luxury 1997 2.0 CSE Anniversary has been intermittently fogging up and when I look behind the pollen filter, I see the recirc flap stuck fully up. I've been able to push it back down which clears the problem for a while but having read the posts above, I'm resigned to changing the...

    When the recirc valve opens i.e switches off it makes loud annoying clicking noises Have removed the valve taken it to bits and all gears are intact When you reconnect the electrics and operate it without it being fitted to the car it makes no noise! Even if you hold the arm to load it up it...

    I am selling: Abbott Racing stage 1 ECU (210bhp) - this has just come off my 2001 9-3 T7 (black DI) LPT 150bhp and will also work with the FPT 185 bhp, manual or auto. Huge difference in performance. Highly recommend the fitting of steering rack brace to help get the power down (and quality...

    On my 2004 93SS Aero 2.0T I have a clicking/ticking when I open the doors initially and if I change the temp on the climate control. From the forums I though this might be the recirc motor. However the noise appears to be coming from behind the main dash and not the glovebox area. The forums...

    As in photo, Forge DV with the adjustable vac port for a neat install. About 2months old, ideal to replace a worn valve. Valve is definatley slightly louder than the standard one so must flow more air quicker. Comes with a suitable length of black samco vac hose. Boxed, with green and yellow...

    I have a Forge dump valve for sale as my car is also up for sale. About 2months old, ideal to replace a worn valve. Can't say if I noticed a performance difference, but its definatley louder so must flow more air quicker. Comes with a length of black samco vac hose. Boxed, with green and...
  11. Saabscene: Performance
    As the topic says really, is it worth ditching the original bosch el-cheepo one and forking out for an alloy one? Also is it worth going for a Hirsch exhaust or something else like an Abbott one? Just fancy doing a little tweaking to my 9-5 Aero, and wondering what to do first Kind regards...
  12. Saabscene: Performance
    Is it possible to get that 'chatter/flutter' noise from a recirc valve unit on the 9-5? I dont mean a big single hiss/dump sound, but more like a series of 'chuffs' :) hopefully someone knows what im prattling on about ! anyway, can it be done? if so, how? last time i had that perfect sound...
  13. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Some of you may know from previous threads about an intermittant bloody annoying noise that I get from my aircon vent on the driver's window side when I hit the aircon recirc button, from previous threads ..... <font color="blue">Previous thread .....</font> and I uploaded an MP3 file <font...
  14. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    After months of Aircon funny noises - I finally took the time to play with the aircon - but just my luck - I could not replicate the noise that I keep getting ... UNTIL ... I put the recirc button on and then I stopped and pulled out the ignition key and waited about 20 seconds - then the nasty...
  15. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I've set my ACC so that the auto recirculation comes on when the car is moving slowly, usually in traffic. However it seems to take an age to turn itself off when I speed up. It seems that I have to reach 30 mph and stay above that for a few seconds. This effectively means that the car is on...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I know now that my recirc motor isn't working the flap in the ACC unit. Can anyone tell me what the 'normal' position is, ie. what angle etc the flap should be at when the ACC is taking in air from the outside. Also, can anyone descibe (or have photos) of the aquarium everyone keeps mentioning...

  18. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Is this programmable in Tech2 or do I have a fault? I've just mentioned the option in another post to set the recirc button so that it defaults to recirc automatically below 6 mph. It's in the handbook. It worked in my old 9-5. But in the 02 Aero the SID says it's set but the icon doesn't...
