Hi, i have a 9-5 se, 2.0 petrol, yr 2000, the prob i have is i can`t get warm air to blow down, it`ll blow on the wind screen but thats all, not even the side vents, is this a big job or is there some thing i can do to fix it.. cheers Jeff
Yes the problem can be solved, costly repair the arm on the control link is broken common problem the whole dash have to come a part I used to work at SAAB as a service writer and just getting a tech on the side was to costly for me and we use to charge customer any where from $1200-$1800, there also could be a lease expensive repair some time there is this part which looks like a toilet paper roll which breaks it could be replace for less money, I'm no mechanic but I'm pretty sure you can find one to take a look at it, and if your economy is any thing like ours it should be no problem finding one and I'm assuming you are not American from the words petrol and wind screen.

I had the same problem on my 9-5 vector 3.0 TiD with the top up coolant warning. Nearly became bankrupt trying to diagnose the problem and trips to Saab. Header tank, sensors, pressure tested etc. The Saab squaddies couldn't figure it out until it got worse. It's a head gasket failure despite passing pressure tests initially...sounds like it's still early days on yours. Had to replace the engine for near £5000.but under warranty :-) Reckon 2.5-3k at a good specialists.
It's a common problem with these cars i am actually fixing mine as of now. That car is all about oil pressure and when it is low you'll start to get a tap and or what sounds like a knock due to the lifters not having enough pressure. Try taking your oil pan off and check your oil pick up line going from the oil pan to the turbo. A lot of times it gets a lot of sludge build up and makes the pressure little to none. If that looks clear check the slump inside the oil pan and see if that has sludge build up. Well hope this helped
I have the same problem with my 1999 Saab 95 SE. I have done some intensive
research on the repair and I have come across a few websites with
solutions and they ultimately point to the same one. Your HeaterBox
blend door or stop arm is broken it diverts the heat to
both sides of the compartment. I had a quick free fix from my dealer
from them by setting my temp to HI on both sides. But that did not fix
the original problem of having cold air blow on the drivers side no
matter which selection your choose to have the air blow, may it be on
the windshield, panel or floor, it still came out cold. It is fine on
the passengers side, but the tech at the Saab dealership instructed me
not to adjust the temperature settings on either side or it might break
completely, I think their just trying to tack on $2000 dollars of
repairs for something I can fix for $100-$200 or even less than that.
You should be able to get the job done in 2-3 hours providing nothing
else is broken besides the blend door arm and/or stop arm in your
heaterbox. Here is the link I found that will help you fix the
problem. Hope it helps and keeps you warm, just be glad you have heated seats
for now, without it I think I'd freeze to death in this Michigan
Check your fuel filter and engine air filter. Sounds like your engine cannot breath or is not getting the proper amount of fuel to run well. Possibly also check your fuel pressure regulator. Justin Strictly Saab Melbourne, FL
