heater core

  1. 9-5 Workshop
    I've got a 2002 9-5 Aero with 91,000 miles. First cold day came to the South today and tried to run the heater. No heat, even on High. Cold A/C still works great on warm days. Just no heat at all. No fault codes when running an ACC diagnostic. Deleted Coolant Bypass Valve (CBV) about a year...

  5. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    So my 2001 saab 9-3 viggen convertible had working heat on my way to work earlier, and then I turned it off once my car got warm. Later, on that same drive to work, turned the heat back on and hot air came out for a few seconds and then just started blowing cold. I turned it off and back on a...
  6. 9000 Workshop
    Hello! I suspect that my heater core is leaking, because this winter I have had coolant getting to the inside of the windscreen of my 9000 and now the A/C won't work. It was hard to remove, and tasted sweet. So I guess it is coolant, which always disappears in my car (might have a blown head...
  7. C900 Workshop
    Hi guys, So I am new to owning a Saab and I like it so far. She came to me in a time of desperation when I had 900$ to my name and I was browsing craigslist when there it was. A 91' Saab 900 5spd, I have always been wary of Saabs, but I am starting to like this one. She's definitely a beater...

    So I am working on getting to my heater core. I use some instructions I found on here for a different car but they have worked well so far. However, I have run into two issues: 1) The instructions were for a manual and I have an automatic. How do I removed the plastic around the gearshift so I...
  9. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello all, I have had a leak that has progressively gotten worse and worse, to the point that Friday my car started to overheat and coolant was spraying from beneath the wiring harness and steaming up. After some research I learned this is where the coolant bypass valve was, and the little...
