The ventilation blower is in the vestibule between the inner and outer fire walls. I think it is commonly called "fishbowl" or "aquarium" - something like that. Saab calls it the "bulkhead" and calls the plastic cover the "bulkhead panel".

The cover to this area is in the far back of the engine compartment - spans from hood hinge to hood hinge. If you find the hose for the windshield washers and follow it down - that is where the bulkhead is.


To access this area and the blower motor:

1. Open the hood.

2. Remove the bulkhead panel. It is secured by eight #20 torx screws (I think). And the washer hose connector.


Thats it.

The motor and fan (close coupled) mount on the RH side of the split in the evaporator casing (the big plastic POS). Notice the disconnected wiring harness connector.




In case you need to change the blower here is a nice step-by-step procedure with images:
