I am a very new owner of a Saab 9-3 Polar White sedan 1.8i from 2008.
I have a problem with the AC not cooling.
I have already planned a service in about a week, as it is illegal to perform AC service at home in my country.
But I wanted to take a look at it before the service and realised...
Does anybody here have experience installing a manual A/C in a 9-3 which previously did not have any A/C? I'm planning on transferring the necessary parts from a donor car, but was wondering if the climate control unit (which houses the evaporator) needs replacing as well, or if I could just...
Looks like my AC compressor finally gave out. I'd like to replace this before it gets unbearably hot (LA already is this weekend)
Are there any I should avoid? I see a couple aftermarket ones but no clue which is a safe bet.
Seems like an odd topic for a car forum, but it does exactly what it says. The blower unit behind the glovebox makes all sorts of tweets, chirps and other bird-related noises. Especially when it is cold.
When the car is up to temperature and the inside of the cabin is too, the sounds disappear...
