I have not seen your A/C system, but I know what I went through with my 87 9000S. First, I can tell you, if your refrigerant was low, your A/C would not come on. I have seen to many postings about that here and at the www.saabnet.com Bulletin Board. Second, if your tech did not test your system for leaks, I would have a hard time believing him. When I had mine done they put in the special dye that shows up using a special black or ultraviolet light. My 9000 had no leaks, but a Mercedes they were working on did. If you want to check on better prices for parts, call Impex Distributors, 1-800-736-3550. I got my rebuilt compressor from them for $310, including the shipping to me and return of the core to them. If you are in the DC area try API at (410)551-1400. They did my A/C work. Ken Washington 87 9000S 87 900S 83 900T Upper Marlboro, MD
