File, Export.
Try saving in a different format - AI or EPS for example.
There may be some limitations imposed, for example text may become outlines. Adobe Knowledge Base: Text is converted when you export artwork to legacy format (Illustrator CS2-CS3)

Depending on what the client needs to do at their end, you could also try exporting as PDF.
