Did someone say that Saabs are > better than the average car? Methinks not. No its not better than other cars. But not a lot worse either! A proffesional dealer knows that the leak may come from pipes or connections that are impossible to see without disassembling a lot of parts in your car. Try a shop that is specialized in AC! > > My power antenna is screwed up, too, and so is the digital display for the > radio.

Pull it up, clean it, lubricate it and it will work just fine. I have an electric antenna on a86 9000, 23 000 km, and it still works fine as long as I take care of it twice a year. My father has a 91 Volvo 965 - and yes, same trouble and same solution...... Magnus The Swede
