I seem to get lucky this week. When I got the car about 1 Month ago. I could not pull the radio due to no tools. Two weeks ago I sent it to someone who could fix the Blower for the AC and heater. That took almost 2 week. We had to wait for the part. Then saab sent the wrong part that where 2 weeks came about.

Yesterday I pick up the Saab and today I pulled the radio out and on Top was Code for the radio. Total cost $6.50 for the Tools to pull the Radio out.

So Now when I talk to the guy next door I am going to say ya it cost me 650 for the radio to work with a good discount. Not saying dollors or cents. When he start going "I told you so saab cost alot to maintain" I will say lucky it was 650 cents not 650 dollors.

He the type that keep going Saabs Cost alot for parts.

But, what was needed to repair the blower and AC ?

How much ?
This is what people hear and believe and cultivate..

About $0.19 for the coat hanger and a little DIY skill to make the radio removal tools.
This, the Saab detractor will never hear...
Enjoy the car, ignore all the nay-sayers.

The dealer does the radio taking out, and looks up the radio code for free. They done that for me and most SAAB owners get that as a courtesy for free. Some dubious dealers charge for that but most don't. If they ask money to provide that service, avoid them all together asd they wouldn't be a reputable SAAB dealer in my book. Luckily I have a great service department at my dealership where the car was always serviced since new.

Well the One in my area wanted to charge $95.00 to get the code. The guy next door told me. They will rip you off. Bla bla bla.

So I was going to get the info on the radio and found the code on top.

The blower was fine. Something with a Relay Switch. I was not the one working on it.

Ok avoid that dealer at all cost. About 99% of SAAB dealers lookup the car radio for you free of charge.

By the way, the tool to remove the radio can be made using a coat hanger (the kind you usually get with the dry cleaning) Here's how you make it
