Where are the pressure release flaps located? The doors on my new saab are difficult to close unless a window is down a little to let the air pressure out otherwise the door only catches the first latch and not close all the way and you can see the roof jump up from the increase in pressure. IIRC they were in the trunk somewhere but I cant find them......

I think its your sunroof, not 100% sure though
No sunroof, the sheet metal of the roof actually bounces up when the door is closed with windows shut. First I thought it was the doors sagging but when we had the windows open it shut perfectly. We then tested with them down an 1/8th inch and it worked perfectly too, when the heater is on its harder to get the door to shut without slamming it.

IIRC, they are on the rear quarter panels, covered by the bumper extensions. I don't have an NG anymore though, so this is a shot in the dark. I don't think the sunroof drains release any interior pressure. To me, that would only happen if the sunroof drained into the cabin which, fortunately, it does not.

^ This is correct. If you remove the entry trunk trim and the plastic nuts by the tail lights, you can peel back the hatch side panels and see the flaps.

Is the climate control system set on recycle when you close the doors and if it is and you have it on normal airflow, does the door closing do the same? Is there any problems with your airflow in the climate control and the recycle mode? just a thought.

It all seems to work ok, it does blow more with a window cracked or in recirc mode. I would never complain about the amount of air in normal mode though for it seems adequate just more air if a window is cracked. I have to drive to Munich and back today, when I get back I will have time to unstick the vents in the trunk and hope that works.
