  1. Part number requests
    Hi guys I'm having difficulty in getting the right caliper for my 93 2008 vector sport 120bhp 1.9tdi. It's the n/s (passenger side) front caliper I look online and they say it will fit my car but it doesn't look the same and takes different spring clip thingies? Any help would be much...
  2. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I fitted a new wheel bearing to my Saab 9-3 Vector Sports estate, yesterday, I had to wait for a new torque wrench to tighten the bolts as the manual says 210 nm ! only having few bolts to tighten I thought it would be easy but disaster, trying to get the E20 torx bolts to 210nm seemed extreme...

    Guys, Easy enough to refurb calipers. Buy a kit with dust cover, piston seal ring, slider rubbers and caps. Get a new bleed nipple. Take the pads out, gently pump out the piston using the brake pedal. Have a poly bag ready to put under the reservoir cap to prevent additional loss...

    Hi Guys, Just about prepped for changing my front discs and pads hopefully this weekend if the weather is decent. Got just about everything I need but wanted to check something with you guys before I go ahead. Am I right on saying that the caliper pistons on the front should just push back in...

    Hi all, I was doing a much, much needed brake job on my 2008 saab 9-3 2.0T and noticed some severely uneven pad wear on the rear passenger side. The pad down the metal is the outside pad. Before I order in a rebuilt caliper, I just wanted to pass it by the great people here to make sure...
  7. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi All, So I replaced front and rear pads and discs. I had no problems with rear pistons, pushed back into place no problem. Got everything back together and checked the handbrake. Nearside is holding great, offside not so - wheel is still spinning when handbrake engaged all the way up. I...
  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Does anybody know what sort of spanner is needed to remove the guide pins/securing bolts on the Saab 9-3 (98-02) front brake caliper? I've printed out the appropriate pages from the WIS, but they don't say whether it's a Torx, Allen or otherwise. I don't want to get started and find I'm missing...

    I'm on the lookout for neon/lime green caliper PAINT! I don't need the full kit, just the spray can itself. Does anyone know where I would be able to find some? Any store and/or online websites? Help would be very much appreciated! :)
  10. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Noticed a bit of brake fade when coming down a very steep hill yesterday. When I stopped the car the front passenger wheel was noticeably hotter than the other three. I am guessing this means a sticking caliper? Are they easy enough to clean-up or am I more likely going to need a new one...

    Ok, I changed my rear pads a few weeks back. When doing so the spring clip snapped and the inserts are stuck / welded / seized into the caliper. I've got by without it as it just stops a bit of noise apparently and tbh I havent noticed any difference at all. Today it failed mot on rear upper...

  13. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi I have a 2002 9-3 aero. Does anyone know where I can get the rubber dust boot that fits on the piston (35mm) of the rear brake caliper. I've tried ebay, local motor shops etc. I phoned 2 stroke Saab and they said they couldn't sell them as it's against their insurance to sell a part that...

  15. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi guys, I was trying to do my brakes and rotors/discs yesterday and I stupidly lost one of the caliper pins. Would anyone have a spare or know where to get one. I've been calling around as it's a very common part for Saabs, Volvos and Vauxhalls but they're all part of a full caliper set. I just...

    while changing the rear discs and pads today, i had trouble with the laser rewind tool, in that it doesn't fit , so used long nose pliers , while doing that the piston went tight , so turned it anti clockwise a couple of times and out it popped , anyway i removed the dust seal, refitted the...

    Hi guys I've replaced the rear brake discs of my 51 plate Saab 93 SE Cabrio and discovered that the drivers side caliper is missing a plate and spring. I'm not 100% sure on what it does but that particular caliper tends to stick which prompted replacement discs and pads. I've taken a photo of...
