Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

well, you must not be too marveled! (or you'd have put it back on already ) Might it not have been just for cooling? what if the battery charging built up a concentration of HYDROGEN gas? the fresh air would help dissipate it ! this could be an issue in a semi-sealed battery box (my viggen has it too - the hose and I think Saab was wise and wonderful and I use the hose !) ( but I met a guy who was blind as a battery blew up, in his face ! - he formerly owned a BMW dealership ! ) this reminds me of the guys who take , took off their underhood insulation /didn't replace it as it got saggy, old and they diss it say it's not needed HA it IS ! ! my wifes 9-3 had an underhood fire - the fan resistor shorted out and the fan shroud (plastic) caught on fire burned quite a bit of parts under the hood it did until it melted the top radiator hose and THat put out the fire ! JUST as the fire dept showed up !( the firemen marveled at he Saab safety ! said "Hey! that's a really safe car has a built-in fire suppression system ! !" so we had a $3,000 +_ ins claim engine compartment battery damage I fixed it myself but the HOOD and paint was NOT harmed! Also, in the AZ desert, it gets bloody hot as HADES and the insulation helps protect the paint The lesson is that the Saab engineers had a good reason for putting it there and it's supposed to be there ! when I question any authority, but especially an engineer I ask WHY they did it 1st
