    I needed one ....... My NS/R was running at 50*C after some whizzing around town ......... My OS/R was running at 175*C ...... I concluded my brake was still binding...... When I'd had it to bits the hub was happy, easily spin aroundable!..... However the piston was just not retracting well...

  10. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hello all, I'm thinking of upgrading my calipers (basically replacing them) as they look very grimy. I replaced the pads and discs (EBC red stuff) but the caliper looks really horrible and I'd like to upgrade it / replace it. I'm love to get a coloured one (red or yellow) to have that "big...

  13. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Had my calipers changed today as they were binding and driving home from the garage I noticed that the pedal has further travel than it used to have and it feels a bit spongy. If I punp the pedal 3/4 times it stiffens up but then steady pressure on it pushes it down. The brakes seem to work ok...
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi All, Well my 2.3 CSE has just passed it's MOT - all that was required was rear discs and pads and a replacement bulb. The garage that carried out the work noticed that the brake fluid (or lack of it in this case) needed replacing - they reported it was double red whatever that means. Anyway...
  15. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi there! I followed the howto on from GirlySaabFan to rebuild the rear brake calipers. I got to the point of getting out the handbrake lever. It won't. According to the howto, after removing the handbrake adjustment screw, the lever should come out. On my 1994 CSE, calipers have...
  16. Classic Saab 900 (1979 - 1993)
    1989 T16 vert Car pulling to left, and no handbrake action to speak of. Took it (against better judgment) to the local Kwik fit - in the blink of an eye, they'd stripped all the calipers off front and rear - fronts fine, but both calipers on rear are 'non operational' and need to be replaced...

  19. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Is it very difficult to make these repairs usind the Haynes book? Especially the caliper in the back - one of them seems to stick bercause the disc is corroded and does not show any friction.
