  1. Tyres, Wheels, and Brakes
    Hi, i have a problem with the O/S/F brake binding on my Saab 9-3 2005. Having stripped and cleaned the slider, the caliper piston moves freely. Only when the pedal is pressed and released, the brake binds on. I am not sure if it is the caliper as it moves freely when returned manually during...

  3. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi I've recently boughta 9-3 (Late 04) and the brakes seem to be binding very slightly intermittantly. Does anyone know if this is a common fault. I'm hoping its just a case of taking the calipers off and just making sure everything is working smoothly will do it but if anybody has any...

On the way, I noticed some low speed vibration, which at crawling pace turned into a groan from one of the front wheels. Dissappeared as soon as I pressed the...

  8. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Several times recently when moving off in the car [in reverse] I've had a clonking noise and an impression of slight resistance at the rear wheels: the first time it happened I assumed there was a can or something in the way but each time I've checked it was absolutely clear. Does anyone have...
