You can replace the resistor pack in the blower housing, it easily plugs in from outside the plastic housing. Remove the large plastic shield across the firewall to get the the blower housing. However, resistor pack costs about £60 from the dealer, so another possibility is to repair it. I have a duff one which I intent to repair, once I know more details. > 6. AC Probably just need a re-charging. Saab says it should be re-charged once a year, but at around £100 a go this may be a bit over the top. But if it hasn't been recharged for 3 or more years, then that's the problem. > 7. Trip computer display on dash Dunno, mine works OK (luckily). This may require some detective work. All sounds a bit like my Saab, 1993 9000 CSE 2.0 LPT.
