Attention all Saab experts. I am experiencing AC problems at the worst possible time here in the southeast US. Here are the AC problems for my 1991 9000S sauna on wheels (no ACC system): 1)The AC fan only works on the highest setting (4) all other settings are dead. I took apart the speed selector switch and checked the dry contacts, they were fine. 2)Although the fan works on high, I only get 5-10 seconds of cool air and after that it is luke warm. 3)When I have the fan on and make a sharp right turn I get the sound of water and I get a drips on my right foot.(I figured this is a build up of condensation because of a clogged condensate drain. Where is it clogged and how is this remedied?) 4)The only way I get cold air is when I have the air recirculation button off and have the fan speed control set at a speed other than high meaning OFF. I am assuming that the compressor is working and I have freon since I get a minimal volume of cold air and I hear the compressor clicking on and off (clicks on and off at 7-8 second intervals while I am cruising at 45 mph). I have begun to take parts of my dash off but I have found that the fan motor is geniusly placed in an inaccessible place. Please help. I am ruining my leather seats with all the sweat that has been pouring off and I may die of heat stroke. I would like to fix this myself and hopefully save the hundreds of dollars that my independent would possibly charge me.
