My 1992 2.0L CDiS has been showing the battery warning light on and off for the last 2 weeks.Volt reading 11.7 and dropping. I have replaced the auxiliary drive belt (manual adjustment not automatic tensioner)today. The old belt was in very poor condition with cracks all over the place and was slack. Tried out my new belt, properly tensioned of course! but voltage problem still remains .Can I now assume it is the regulator? and replace it? or just get a "new" alternator from GSF for £75.00 plus vat, if it is judged the regulator could it prove to be a false economy? GSF in Belfast say they don't stock the regulator so it is a dealer order. The unhelpful Saab parts Dept at Isaac Agnew Saab in Belfast quoted me £40.00 plus vat for the regulator ;which they initially said they don't have and tried to flog me a new alternator at well over £200.00
; and most annoyingly 7 to 10 days for delivery of the regulator to them from Sweden Any suggestions or advice would be most welcome.Many thanks,

Colin

Colin,

I have just had the same problem fixed, you replied to the post last week. Turned out to be the voltage regulator, problem is sorted now. As far as I can remember the regulator was about £30 + vat at a saab specialist (www.Saabtec.co.uk). There must be some of the Saab parts specialists that are able to send you one of these more quickly.
I had the same problem as you, watching the voltage readout, at the wrong time.
