Hello. Let me try to assist you the best I can, with the hope of achieving a FixYa rating from you for my assistance.
Changing the rear valve cover gasket on your vehicle would be not considered a "real" big job, but IS a time-consuming job.
In order to remove the rear cover, you first have to remove the intake plenum. If you do not remove the plenum, you can't get to the valve cover bolts that are under the plenum. After the plenum is off, the valve cover is easy to access. You will also need to replace the intake plenum gasket, if you do the job yourself.
I hope this information has satisfied your question.
Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance!

SOURCE: saab 9-5 se, heater problem
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.

Re : the computer , they better cover it under warranty or they ****.
Re : the water pump , you have a leak and they say it is the water pump , I have no reason to doubt that they have honestly checked out the problem and determined that a new water pump is the only solution but , damn $ 1000 is pretty steep. I would look around for another mechanic for a second opinion and a quote. Avoid dealerships. Not sure what engine you have but i just looked in my saab with a 2.3 and hope I never have to do mine. I am pretty good with a wrench but I know there would be lots of swearing involved.

Saabs are finicky here. Try replacing all your tail lights at once and use bulb grease to help insure a good connection between the bulb and the socket.
