On my Saab 9000 CSE 1993 75000 miles, the A/C pump wheel emits a noise (A/C off) which one normally would associate with lack of lubrication. The noise is not audible inside the car, but it worries me if the unit is about to fail. I asked the Saab dealer about it, he said there are no lubrication points or requirements for this unit. A replacement pump would cost around £500 ! This is a lot of money for a bit of cold air. What should I do now ? Johannes
