In the air conditioning system there is a viewing window through which it is possible to determine liquid level in system. The viewing window is located in the top part of a receiver in a forward right corner of a motive compartment on models with right-hand steering, or in the top part of the evaporator on the right side of a partition of a motive compartment in models with left-side steering.


 CHECK REMOVAL INSTALLATION

1. Start the engine and turn on the air conditioning system.
2. Several minutes later glance in an observation port and check a liquid stream. Pure liquid has to be visible - if is not present, then the following causes of defect are possible:

   a) The stream of pure liquid - system functions normally.
   b) There is no liquid stream - it is necessary to carry out an inspection on existence of leaks in representative office of SAAB or in a specialized workshop on repair of air conditioners.
   c) In liquid the constant stream of air bubbles - the insufficient level of coolant is visible - the system has to be recharged in representative office of SAAB or in a specialized workshop on repair of air conditioners.
