Kinda strange huh? Any ideas? The compressor clutch has been energized so the compressor is started.

If you can locate it at a used parts dealer, I believe that your problem is a perforated or slotted plastic strip with which the motor gear engages. It is stripped. You may be able to but this from Saab. At least this was my experience. Malcolm > >The *aerial* doesn't have a separate 'mast' AFAIK.
