Hi all. I tried unblocking my heater matrix using the garden hose approach by taking off both water pipes to and from the heater matrix and plugging the hose in one of them. It failed. Most of the water was coming back out, and I only got a trickle from the other hose. Blocked big time.

So I thought to try the power washer instead of the hose. It worked! After a few seconds blasting down one pipe, voila, water flowed through nicely! Putting the hose back on resulted in excellent flow through the matrix.

Now I have hot air again!

Hope this helps someone

Quite, but if it's as bad as you say it can't really hurt now can it?

Good tip Harry. (Have some more stars on me!)

Nick.

PS. Could this have been the source of some of your overheating problems before??

Hehe... I'm afraid my Saab days are over for now, I have sold the Carlsson a few months back. I still browse through Saabscene though... I suppose because it's a daily habit by now...
