  1. 2002 9-5 heater box being weird.

    9-5 Workshop
    Hi guys, so lately I've had codes 8 and 13 pop up on my AC unit, with only cold air coming out from the driver side vents. so I went to the stealer and told them what the problem was and they told me they had to take out the entire heater box out to see what the problem was. and they also found...
  2. ACC not working properly - model year '06

    9-5 Workshop
    Greetings! I've recently obtained my second Saab - A 2005/11 9-5 Aero wagon with auto transmission. However, unlike the other saab I own ('05 9-3 convertible in totally mint condition) this one has quite a lot of issues. One of them is the automatic climate control (ACC). It works OK for the...
  3. AC / Blend Door Metal Rod

    9-5 Workshop
    Hi guys, So as the temperature is going up I turned on the AC once again and... it didn't really work. Did the OFF and AUTO trick and it gave the 08 and 14 codes - both left and right blend doors. Now, the passenger side is fixed. BUT the driver's side - I removed the motor and got to see that...
  4. heater box inner workings question

    9-5 Workshop
    I am trying to get heat on the left side of my 2000 Gary Fisher and am puzzled by the inner workings of the heater box (error code 1-8). I removed the stepper motor and snorkel and have tried to manually move the blend door flap by reaching around inside to the inner part of the shaft. I can't...
  5. 99 9-5 climate 08 code. How can I fix this?

    9-5 Workshop
    Ok so my heat and AC no longer work at all and no air blows out at all. The only code it gave me what an 08 and I went under and found that the control arm was fine but the shaft it's attached to (no idea what it's called but it's yellow on the inside and hard to see) I think it's a blend door...
  6. Just Another Blend Door

    9-5 Workshop
    Alright, so I have a 2001 Saab 9-5 Aero. Had ACC codes 08 and 13, blowing hot as hell on the drivers side, nice and cold on the passenger side. Had previously replaced just the lever on the drivers side, not the shaft/lever. Well the shaft had cracked and was causing issues. So I purchased the...
  7. Blend Door Issue

    9-5 Workshop
    I've got the all too common blend door problem on my 1999 Saab 9-5 V6 Wagon. The limit arm was broken, and the blend door shaft is broken as well. I know about the aluminum replacement you can buy that slides over the broken shaft, but what I am wondering is if there is a way to remove the...

    I am a bit perplexed with my heater box. I only have heat from the right side, and intermittent cold to sightly warm air on the left. I did have a code, and I did fix the left blend door arm with an aluminum replacement part. All stepping motors are working. I did remove the motors and moved the...

My stop lever is definitely broken. Its gone in two places. My blend door...
