Where is the Bank 1 Sensor 1 located on a 2006 Saab 9-3?
I'm assuming your looking for the oxygen (O2) sensor on that side of the engine. Find the belts and pulley wheels on the end of the engine. Most likely the left side of the car as you look at the engine. Stand on that side of the car with the belts nearest to you. Look across the engine.
On the transverse engine fitted to Saab 9-3, Bank One is always the left side of the engine, (nearest the driver), and Bank Two is always the right side of the engine, (nearest the headlights).
Standing in front of the car look down the back of the engine, Sensor One will be positioned in the exhaust manifold or first short section of exhaust 'Before' you get to the catalytic converter. It will be a metallic tube shaped sensor with a set of wires coming out of the top end of it. I would recommend buying one of the specialist sockets or spanner's for this as they can be a pain in the backside to get access to.
each exhaust has two sensors fitted. Sensor One is always nearest the engine, before the catalytic converter, and Sensor Two is always furthest from the engine, after the catalytic converter.

Need help with ac comperssor on 1999 saab 9 3 turbo, tried recharging and the compessor just wont kick on. Any suggestions on where to start
I would check the fuses first. After you confirm the fuses are good, I’d unplug the compressor and turn on the ac inside the car. With a test light or voltmeter, one of the wires should have positive voltage. Assuming the climate control unit inside the car is working correctly. If one has power when u switch it on inside and then when U turn it off the wire that had power doesn’t anymore then check to make sure the other wire is grounded. If it is the compressor is bad. Now if you don’t have enough Freon in the car it won’t kick on. The low pressure switch will prevent it from kicking on. Does your fans kick on when you turn on the ac inside? You can take and apply power to the compressor with a jumper wire from the positive terminal
On the battery and hook it to the positive wire on the compressor. If the compressor kicks on it’s good and it’s not the compressor.
