    Guys, Does anyone know whether the adjuster for the Vectra is the same as the SAAB 9-5 and 9-3 one ? If so then a part No. would be useful. Paul @ Kippen
  2. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Guys, Just spent a while sorting the brakes on Mrs P @ K's Cabrio for the forthcoming MOT. Fronts just needed tidying up but the handbrake was fairly useless. It sort of worked but had a tendency to seize on if left for any length of time. The external pull off springs were fine but the lever...
  3. 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...

    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...

    I've only had my first car for 2 weeks, it's an automatic 9-3 Aero Sport. Today I took the car for a free health check, because it's free and I bought the car from a private seller so. Problem is I never use the handbrake on the car, I just put it into P and walk away. I learnt in a manual, so...

  11. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Hi, Put my 2002 9-5 estate through the MOT last week and apart from replacing the front flexi pipe on the exhaust and a rear bush, it went through. My gamble of buying it for £475 with a short MOT seems to have paid off so far!! One area where I thought it would fail is the handbrake. I...
  12. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    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...

    After 4 years of trouble free motoring, my wifes 2004 93 Convertible has a problem, resulting in MOT failure . The handbrake only works on one side... The MOT tester's meter showed no pressure at all on drivers side handbrake. Other side is fine. I changed brake pads & shoes last year & it...

    I've just got a second hand handbrake mech as mine has lost its ratchet. The one i've just purchased has got a small amount of cable fitted to it with a brass coloured 'T' at one end which i guess fits to the main cable. What i need to know is where is this actual connection? After having a...
  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Hi there! I followed the howto on Saab9000.com 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...

    The handbrake in my TX had to be replaced under warranty. The original hand brake was leather clad as opposed to the standard plastic lever, but the clowns (dealer) have fitted the standard plastic one and tell me that Saab have stopped making the leather type. I thought they were giving me...

    my 9-3 SS Aero (MY03) just failed its MOT on dodgy handbrake. Garage reckons cable needs replacing but they can't get hold of parts, even from local Saab dealership. Anyone have any experience of this, advice on where to look for parts? Tried Elkparts and an online supplier but they don't list...

    I have a strange fault on my handbrake:- have checked the shoe adjustments and are happy they are good, then adjusted the cable at the lever and for about 3 months all was good. Then the lever gradually needed pulling up further and further until I needed to adjusted it again. Now although the...
