    Thanks for reply. No, I did not change the entire assembly, too much money. I replaced only Coolant bypass valve 2-times within 2 months. Both leaked at top vent. All the hoses are good. no cracks at all. the solenoid is bench tested with 12 volts. it functions correctly. Not sure what should be the voltage at the solenoid terminals. It reads 0.80 volts between the 2 terminals. Ground to each terminal is 12.8 Volts. the vacuum is good at the pipe.

    2003 Saab 95 Arc V6 Turbo, Heater Valve replaced twice, leaked twice

    HELLO Saab Friend, 2003 Saab 9-5 Arc
    I replaced this Heater bypass valve 2 times in 2 months ( bought for $12.79 each on Ebay https://www.ebay.com/itm/7610-207-FI...72.m2749.l2649).
    Dismantled it had pink diaphragm. The Original had black.

    Both failed/leaked at the small hole vent above the diaphragm. What causes the failure.??? Any suggestion.?? The vacuum solenoid bench tested with 12 Volts, it works.
    Please help. Thanks and regards.

    Symptoms of a coolant/heater bypass valve going bad:
    -Coolant leakage under the firewall
    -Smell of burning coolant
    -In some cases (like mine) a catastrophic leak that dumps the whole coolant tank

    Very straightforward replacement that I completed on my '03 Arc in about 55 minutes. Total cost was about $40 for the valve from eEuroparts.com

    Tools needed:
    -Narrow tipped pliers
    -A socket set with wrench
    -Bungee cord
    -bucket (to avoid coolant spillage all over your garage)
    -Cutters of some sort

    Procedure:

    1. Place the bucket under the car under the valve.
    2.Mark the top tube with a pen/marker so you know where it goes afterward

    Attachment 4112

    3. Undo the wire harness box

    Attachment 4114

    and use the bungee cord to pull it toward the front of the car so it's out of your way.
    4. Clip the zip tie from the top hose and remove all of the silver hose clamps and undo the hose from the top of the valve

    Attachment 4113

    5. At this point the valve should slide upward out of a bracket that is attached to, I believe, the hoses behind the valve.
    6. Slide the new valve into the bracket and reconnect everything. Be sure to put a new zip tie where the original one was or else the valve will flop around the may come out of the bracket.

    I hope I didn't leave anything out, I did this repair awhile back. If I did, chime in!
