Question about 2008 Saab 9-3
It is common for the fan on the Saab 9-3 to seize, so if the fuse doesn't fix the problem you need to lift the hood, pull away the plastic trim on the left of the engine bay between the bottom of the windsreen and the firewall.
Pull away the pollen filter, the blower fan is situated under it. With the keys out of the ignition rotate the fan by hand, back and forward. Give the fan spindle a spray of penetrating oil then try the fan again.
You might have to try this a couple of times.
the other place to look is the blower resistor pack which sits in the same area, if the drain hole is blocked and there is evidence the area has been full of water, it might be the pack that has burnt out.
