cold/hot air flap in 1999 lpt

when i turn on the ignition and the air comes on there is a buzzing sort of noise like the fan is wierd or somthin and it does not stop and continues when the car is started and when ever air is on. I heard it may be the cold/hot air flap or somethin that regulates that in the air system. i get cold air on passenger side and not drivers side. How much does this part cost? any ideas if it is something else and how to swap the parts?

Its the Heater box body. It Fails, Saab Knows it and Sells Just the Parts nessesary to fix it. Its in the center of the Dash throghBolted or screwed really to the fan housing on the other side of the fire wall. Just ask the dealer for a Heater Box Kit.

Check the ACC codes first... it should tell you exactly what is wrong. Hold 'Auto' and 'Off' on the ACC controls and release. Check the code that comes up against this table.

If it is the flap, you can fix it yourself for like $5. There is a thread over on SaabCentral about it that is very helpful.

Yeah, the code can be intermittent. It does sound like the blend door shaft though if you are only getting air on one side.

Look for that thread on SC, should be titled 'ACC 08 Code' or something like that. Its in the FAQ in the 9-5 Problems section.

At the worst it won't help and will waste 20 minutes of your time. At best, it will save you $300.

something similar happened to my car.
It turned out to be the little motor that turns the flaps, the little gear had actually moved forward and lost contact with the other gears and continually spun.
You have to get under the the dash and take out the little screws to with draw the motor and tap the gear shaft back into place. There is a motor on either side. Its like a little electric motor in a toy car.
Cost is nothing, and 1 hour in labor.
I found instructions from here with pics, it was very helpful. Just can't remember what i searched it with at the moment.
