    My SAAB 93 1.9 TiD 54 reg with 52,000 miles has its breaklights stuck on when ever the ignition key is on or when the engine is running. My non SAAB garage thought it was the switch and replaced it. The lights stayed on and they then suggested that the main computer was responsible. Does any one...

    I was out to get the MOT (TUV) and the guy told me that the left rear disc should be renewed and the break pads are corroded and do not touch the disc. As this is strange to me, can anybody help or have an advice if this could be true? I do not trust that guy. Looking at the disc there are some...
