Hello, I have a 90 900s Conv here in Southern California. 3 things go wrong with air conditioning on Saab's. 1. The switch. 2. The compressor. 3. The hoses. You can get the hoses rebuilt in most cities, that is half the price of new. The uncrimp the fittings and replace the hoses then recrimp the fittings. In CA it's about 150 for both upper and lower hose plus the cost of coolant. (50-75.00). I almost never need air except on the hottest of days. Good luck, Wayne Ilia Papas wrote: > > After I simply asked if there was a problem with my A/C or not on my '90 > 900S, my Tech took the liberty to disassemble my A/C system for $100. > They found that the compressor was not coming on when the dash switch > was pressed.
