The blower motor is located behind the firewall in the engine compartment.You can access it by removing the plastic cover above the firewall beneath the windshield.Remove the screws securing the firewall.You now have access to the blower motor but it has to be separated from the evaporator housing.The complete list of instruction are too many to list here.Go to the website SAABNET and do a search on the bulletin board New Generation 900 section and post your question.You can print the instructions out.

2.3 900 se fan belt


The Saab fan is electrically controlled directly via the ECU and has no belt. I will therefore assume you are referring to the accessory belt that drives the power steering pump, the alternator, AC, etc. Pictures and step by step instructions are here and here. Both of these sites are also demonstrating the use of a shorter belt to bypass a center idler pulley that fails frequently (and that was eliminated altogether by Saab in the transition from new generation 900s to the first iteration of the 9-3 model).
