Today on recommendation of many gentlemen from alt.autos.saab I tore my driver speaker out to see if the rod was still connected. To my regret I have to say that it was stll connected and the dial for the temp seems to be working fine. Even after I turned the valve with my hands there was no heat comming out of my rosters. Bummer. The tubing that goes to the point where the rod attaches to are both warm to the touch but still no warm airflow in the car. Can it be the heater itself that is broke? And how can I repair that. I guess I tried all the "simple" solutions. Now it is time for the drastic mearure of tearing down the dashboard???? Thanks all who are helping me with this. You are my knights (in shinning SAAB armour!) Chris
