Question about 1995 Saab 900
I don't see a dirty cabin air filter causing your AC to fail - the cabin filter isn't connected to the AC system - it's in the vent feed from the outside, where air enters the car to be cooled. Having it filthy would only cut down a bit on the volume of air coming into the car, not on how well the AC system cools it. If the blower fan had a problem, I could see it possibly causing a failure, but I've never heard of a blower fan resistor - maybe a fan speed switch failing could cause it (that's known to happen with Audi cars), but Saab is somewhat different in their approach to car design, so I suppose it's possible. If nothing else, have them pull the service manual and show them the "blower fan resistor".
First off though, since you have your car back, I'd take it somewhere else, preferably an independent shop that specializes in European cars, and have them diagnose it. If they come up with something drastically different, I'd contact this place that you've been dealing with and let them know what has been found, and offer them a chance to make it right by you. Let them know that you may pursue legal action otherwise, as it's been apparent that they're blowing you off and don't really know what they're doing.
Did you get a return call yet? What did they say?
