    Front pad on their last legs and disks a little lipped too so whilst i am doing the pads i might as well fit new disks. Would be nice to know what size the disks are as i understand there are several different sizes available, given it's the 210bhp and an auto (no engine braking) likely to be a...

    I changed all disks and pads yesterday, plus a fluid change. The job went well and I am happy with the result. One thing is bothering me though, the handbrake seems to come up much higher than before. I'm not 100% sure as I rarely drive the car as it is my wife's. It does come up a helluva way...

    The usual dilemma - should i go with what the dealership offered or get the disks/pads myself and pay them only to put them on? Last week I was in my local Saab dealership to check my brakes and apparently my front disks are scored and the pads need to be changed (they suggested that the pads...

    I have had a quick flick through and couldn't find a topic on this. Mrs Rag-Top's 2006 9-3, 1.9 TiD 150 Sportwagon has done 116,00 miles and 7000 miles ago we had new discs and pads fitted all around. Two weeks ago we had a grinding noise form the rear under braking which I though was dirt or a...

    I've tried to search on here for similar posts but to no avail. My query is in relation to the Saab CD / Tape / Radio unit in my 2000 X reg 9-5. My CD player has long been unwilling to play CDs. Having recently acquired some Isopropyl Alcohol I thought there was no harm in taking the stereo...

    Hi, My front tyres are done and need replacing. My rear tyres are not matching but they are both ok. Plan is to buy 2 new tyres for the rear and move the two rear to the front to wear out whereupon I will replace them with the same as on the rear. Now, while this needs doing, so do my disks...

    Well i got my front disks and pads done and got my radiator fan fixed.. I passed on the info from here to the garage about what was likely wrong with the fan and you guys were dead right, corroded cable/connector below the radiator..
