Question about 1999 Saab 9-5

Open Question

Just got car 1999 Saab 9-5 SE auto back from mechanic and notice two holes in the carpet up behind the accelerator and above the footrest and can see some sort of engine parts. Do you know what it is.

I think there should be some covers that they've forgot to put on? Can't find any pics on the web.

SOURCE: How to reattach serpentine belt on 1999 saab 9-3

The Saab accessory drive (serpentine) belt is self-tensioning by means of a tensioning pulley. Excessive play means that the current belt is spent and must be replaced. It is a very good idea to replace the idler pulley above the tensioner pulley at this time as the bearings fail over time. You can get an aftermarket pulley of machined billet aluminum construction with a repalceable bearing race from Wazee Pulleys. This pulley is superior to the stock one in just about every conceivable way.
To remove the belt you will need a 1/2 inch socket extension bar that will fit exactly in the top of the tensioning pulley housing and a six mm allen key which you will use to lock the tensioner assembly into this position relaxing the belt. This site shows the proper routing of the stock belt and the routing procedure to bypass the highly failure prone center idler pulley if your car has that (yours should not), as well as the procedure to remove and fit a new belt. Note, the belts shown on this site are for the short-belt modification only. See also, this site for additional information. Another diagram is here with part numbers for the pulleys and the belt.
To remove the belt, you will find it best to remove the airbox to allow you more room at the top end to work. Also, jack up the car and remove the passenger wheel to give you access down below.

I dont have idea where air filter is?

Maybe, as on my1999 Saab 9-5 V6 3.0t SE sedan, it's behind the passenger's side front wing, before the wheel...Black plastic cover retained by 4 screws... fast and easy to do, all you need is a torx screwdriver...and to lift the car securely.

Hope it help, even if my english isn't terrible.

Saab 93 convertible 1999, how do you refill hydraulic roof

To check the oil level open the boot - at the very back remove the 4 plastic clips that hold the carpet in place. Slightly to the left of the center there are 2 holes - shine a light in the bottom and look through the top one to check the level.
To add oil - fold down the seat backrest. Remove the plastic trim - held on by 4 screws and 2 pop out plastic cllips. Undo the 8 large bolts that hold the cover in place - 2 on top and 3 on front and back.Then lift up the cover from the front edge. You will then be able to get to the resevoir - you will need a funnel to poor fluid in.

there may be a mechanical back up system to temporaily bypass the electrical circuit. Look in your owner manual. Some have a small hole in the shift console to insert a pin the depress the release for the shift interlock.
