Hi

Would it be a complete waste of time/money/and possible to convert from the ordinary heater to a/c.
This is probably one of those insane queeries, but cheers for any replies/slags anyway.

I think what Mutungi meant was that you should sell your car and buy one with Automatic Climate Control already fitted.

Trying to fit A/C or ACC to a "heating only" car is a fool's errand. It will drive you insane and bankrupt you.

I believe the only aftermarket A/C that Saab offered was the non-climate-control one. This goes with the heating system you have and adds an on-off button for aircon. Of course, apart from this button, there is the compressor, evaporator, condenser, etc. along with all the associated plumbing and drivebelt. It appears that it was feasible to fit this system after the fact, so the necessary wiring for the switch and the compressor should be there. The climate control system is a very different kettle of fish.
