  2. Recovering refrigerant - ideas?

    9-5 Workshop
    Hey guys, So I'm trying to get the AC compressor out of @andybisnut's parts car, but we need to deal with the refrigerant and we can't quite figure out how. Any ideas about how to capture the refrigerant so we don't offend the EPA? I guess once we get it in a bottle or something it can be...
  3. A/C Problems with my 1998 900 SE

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi Friends. My A/C stopped working. I checked all relays, fuses and connections. Then I checked the flap motor behind the ACC unit and it is good. Then I checked the flap motor next to the audio amp, and the flap mechanism was stuck. I unstuck it, and the A/C seems better. But that motor moved...
  4. 2007 9-3 AC compressor cuts out when it rains

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've been having a weird AC issue for the last year or so that's been too intermittent to pin down. I've looked through other threads and gotten some hints, but haven't found this same problem. I was hoping I could list the symptoms and see if anyone can help. AC blows super cold when it's...
  5. 2006 AC Compressor

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello! So, my mechanic says my AC compressor is weak, and that is what is making it blow warm air instead of cold. He also said he couldn't do any better than $1235 to fix it, and I that should either find cheaper parts than he can or find a new car! Anyway, I found a few outlets selling a...
  6. Moving AC compressor

    C900 Workshop
    The bolts on the bottom of my AC compressor are giving me hell, I can't get them to budge. I need to move it to fit a new wiper linkage in. I don't have a breaker bar but even if I had one I really doubt I could fit in the small space, there's barely clearance for my wrench. Any ideas for...
  7. A/C compressor clutch not getting power

    C900 Workshop
    It's warming up here in the southern hemisphere, and I'm trying to see what's going on with the A/C on my 900. Basically, I turn on the A/C and the compressor clutch is not engaging. Initially I though it was just a bad clutch, however I checked for voltage at the little red connector that goes...
  8. How do I diagnose an AC system?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I haven't used the AC that much in the past few years. Two summers ago, a shop said that the AC system was dry and needed a recharge. Costs hundred bucks or so, and when it came back from the shop, it worked. It wasn't a particularly hot summer, and my SAAB is a convertible, so I didn't use...
  9. Compressor clutch pulley

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have an 08 93 with the 2.0T engine. Has anybody taken the pulley off without having to pull the compressor? Failing that without draining the system? I'm fairly sure that I have the right bearing for the clutch but I need to pull the pulley first to replace it. Many thanks, Steven
  10. AC Not Working Compressor and Relays are Good

    9000 Workshop
    The air conditioning on my 1996 9000 CS has not worked since I bought it 5 years ago. I moved to California and the past weekend it was 105 degrees so I've decided to look into fixing the AC. I checked all of the fuses and all of the relays and they are all working. The compressor does not kick...

  12. A/C Problems Thread

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi guys, I have a 2003 Saab 9-3 Arc. The A/C does not blow cold. The fan works and the air comes out but it doesn't blow out cold. I was wondering if any others had similar A/C problems and could post what the problem was on their individual car. Thanks!
  13. Short serpentine belt to AC bypass

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi guys, My AC compressor is probably faulty (I need to check fuse & relays). That's they said at the mechanics. To bypass the AC compressor, is there a way to install a short serpentine belt? I've seen a lot of posts on the OG93 but mine is a MY2006 1.9 TiD 93 (Z19DTH engine) but not for this...
  14. 95 9000 Aero AC/fan operates intermittently

    9000 Workshop
    Morning Gents and ladies. I bought this car in the winter. It's getting a bit warm, now. My AC was working for a while, now it won't cool, then the fan stops completely after I drive it for a few miles. Had it recharged, it barely took any. Checked the fuses- even the big one. I re-calibrated...

  16. AC Disaster

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    OK, so I'm pretty sure i just signed my self up for a long expensive project. Winter is ending and I come to find out that my AC isn't working any more. Doesn't get cold. So, I check the low pressure line and it doesn't read anything. Add a 12 oz can of refrigerant and the compressor kicks...
  17. 9-3 2.0i MY98 -- AC compressor compatible with Opel?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi friends, I need to replace my AC compressor and I've been told that some Opel cars had the same model -- or at least a compatible one. I've done my homework and I've found out that my model (2.0i 9-3) was being fitted with either Seiko Seiki SS121 or Sanden TRS105 (don't know about my car...

  19. Climate controller

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi, my climate control system has gone haywire. the car is a 1999 9-3 Viggen 2 door. For example, it blows from the bottom and not out the top vents when the top vents are chosen. Also sometimes it will turn the heater on instead of the air conditioner, although this has only happened a...
