  1. Climate Control blows hot AND cold at once

    9-5 Workshop
    The climate control on my '04 Arc works fine for the driver position, but the passenger side and back seat sometimes deliver heat when cooling is needed, and vice versa. I think it once briefly sent heat to the back seat and AC to the passenger seat, but I'm not sure. My dealer originally said...

    I have a 2005 Saab 9-3. It is probably the 2006 model(made in November). Just purchased it couple of weeks ago. When I start the car the A/C starts immediately. I didn't really like it so wanted to get rid of this feature. I checked the user manual which says: Hit Customize, go to Climate...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I just bought an a/c compressor off a 2005 9-3. I was wondering if any DIYers have changed the compressor before and whether it was difficult or not. I consider myself pretty handy when it comes to cars, but I assume this will probably be one of the more difficult jobs to do just given the...

    For the past few weeks, my AC has not been working properly and blowing out warm air. Took it to the shop (which is specialized for Saabs) where they first recharged my AC.
