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 couple of times.

The local saab guy says that he has checked it out and the problem is that I need a new compressor.:confused:

I cannot think how a new compressor would fix this issue?
Has he just thought of the most expensive thing he can do to the car?
Or is there some magic mechanism that means if your compressor is not working then the vents will not change properly?

Any advice is welcomed!
