The air conditioning systems on some 2005 Saab 9-7X models built before 6/05 may be slow to cool in high temperature/humidity conditions. According to Saab, the problem is usually intermittent, surfaces right after engine startup and is most prevalent during low engine and/or vehicle speed conditions. Insufficient airflow through the condenser due to a slipping electro-viscous fan clutch is the likely cause of the malady. Installing an improved fan clutch assembly, part # 15293048, is the simple fix.
