Sounds like you damaged the heater core, although I have never worked on a saab so I cant be 100% sure. The glove compartment area is generally where it is located and it will leak coolant when punctured. It will have to be replaced. This is a 20 minute job in older domestics, but it is a huge pain in newer cars and can take forever. If neccessary you should be able to bypass it to stop the leak, but you will not have any heat until it is fixed. If you are going to try and fix it yourself, get a manual
