By turning on one of these systems you are putting more load onto the fan. Consequently the fan start to shudder under the load therby making the noise. This becomes more noticable as fan bearings become old and worn out. You could try and inject white lithium grese onto the fan shaft some of it might reach the bearing. Also check that the fan is not chipped under load that will start to make noise. sometime fan blades sofer from stone damage consequently chipping the fan blades

I had the same problem. Unfortunately, I had to replace the cabin fan assembly. This cost $375 it works great now. The mechanic said he could tap the fan and make it work, but when he turned the car off and then restarted it would not work. So he replaced the cabin fan assembly.

Blower for AC/heat not working on Saab 9-3 ARC


that happened to me there is a i guess u can call it a fan cooler it keeps the fan from overheating and if that blows on a hot day it can mess up your blower moter but if its not workin at all you most likely allready did that for this job the blower moter is located behind the glove box if you not half dumb its a job u can do yourself and save a looooot of money on labor

Hot air forced into cabin while driving 92 saab 900


the air distribution switch controls the air distribution and the fan, distribution switch in the 0 (straight down position) will be off. Car movement forces air into teh body, but with teh fan off there will be no air when the car stops. Does the fan run when the distribution switch is in any other position? it should respond to the speed settings of the fan switch.

There is a vacuum bottle accumulator that assists the distribution switch, sometimes this gets disconnected and the switch settings don't work.

Do you hear any noises if you turn the distribution knob while the car is running? suction noises, or flaps opening?

If not, then you likely have a vacuum problem (check for a white bottle in left front wheel housing, except convertible -> under the spare wheel, tank should have one or two vacuum lines connected to it (one for convertible). A disconnected or leaky line is the most likely cause.

Possible other causes are faulty air distribution switch; burned out fan motor; inoperative vacuum solenoid motors controlling air distribution flaps.

But check the vacuum accumulator first, if under the spare wheel, the lines are easily dislodged.
