  1. Checking my sanity.... heater core?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I'm just running down the symptoms I have leading me to believe I have a leaking heater core. -Strong coolant smell in the cabin -Fogging windows that won't clear -No detected coolant leaks or smells outside the car Is there anything else that would line up with this other than a heater core?
  2. ACC blows either hot or cold, no intermediate temperatures

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi all, My 2002 9-3 ACC isn't providing me any intermediate temperatures. I get either super hot when I bring the ACC up to "HI," or I get cold air blowing on me for any temperature setting below "HI." I've run the ACC calibration a handful of times with no change. I'm not getting any...
  3. 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...
  4. AC/Heater Blower Motor

    9-5 Workshop
    Recently acquired a 2006 9-5 wagon. I was told the AC did not work but upon inspection it is the blower motor not working. Does not work on any settings whether heater or AC related. My question is what is the most common reason for blower motor not to work on a Saab 9-5?

  11. Which heating pad?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    The bottom heating pad on the drivers seat died over the winter. I want to replace it soon. On eEuroparts they list 2 types, one for a sport seat and a regular one. How do I know which one? Also is there a DIY on opening up the seats? Can't find anything in WIS...:confused...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    When I'm driving with the top up the heater comes on fine and it stays on the temperature degrees settings on the screen. When I put the top down the temperature settings changed to a 1 to 10 scale and the heater never seems to work with the top it just blows outside air. I only have ever had...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello, all, long time lurker, first time poster. I'm a severe amateur, but this one is driving me nuts. About a year ago, I had my (now ex-) girlfriend's brother work on the 2002 Saab 9-3 that she gave me. He is a mechanic at... a chain, but unfortunately, he hated working on Saabs so much...

  16. whirring from climate control '95 900

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    The climate control works fine and the heat and a/c blow their proper temps but when i turn the wheel to the right when the heat is on it makes a funny whirring sounds and when i turn left the sound stops. Also, there is no heat "blowing" on the drivers feet. just the passengers.
