Forum rules


When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year & model in the post subject/thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Year - Car Model - Brief description of issue. FOR EXAMPLE- ''1999 9-3 - Problems starting when hot.''

For Tech II issues or help requests please state the following in your thread title ''Tech 2 help required - state issue and your location ''.


Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.


Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum, note compliant threads will be moved back when the mod/admin team next visit the Pit Lane. if your thread has been sat in the Pit Lane for 24hrs+ after editing, pm Tech II to request release)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Good Evening

I have just purchased the car and am having an uneducated look under the bonnet whilst I await my Haynes manual. There is a silver pipe that runs from the front of the engine and under the front edge of the air filter box where I can see a valve within the pipe exposed - What is the function of the pipe? should this be capped and if so is there any negative impact to not having one fitted - apologies in advance for the stupid question but I am looking the find the source of a slightly lumpy idle and want to rule it out.

Regards

Gavin

Sounds like an air conditioning pipe, can you post a photograph?

I would forget all about the Haynes manual and go do a Google search for WIS or use WIS On-line https://saabwisonline.com/

From the perspective of good engineering practice, yes. That doesn't mean I have any idea what the pipe does.

Think it's an Aircon port.
Usually has a large plastic cap on it. Probably to prevent muck from filling the tube.
