    I have a 1972 96 which is in need of a brake master cylinder repair kit. It has a Lockheed unit with servo but I am having trouble finding a kit. A few weeks ago there were a few kits available on Ebay but they seem to have disappeared. Could anyone help with this or at least give me the part...
  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Ok, after surmising that the hardest part of doing this job would be getting to it, it's tucked in behind the brake vacuum servo on RHD models, I thought I'd feel around for the hard line retaining clip. (at the front of the cylinder in engine bay) Well Ive just poked around with various sized...

  8. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, I;ve just been told that my spongy brakes are due to a faulty master cylinder and that a replacement from Saab will cost circa £530 - cheapest aftermarket that the garage have found is £350. Does anyone know whether the 9-3 Aero Hot conv shares the master cylinder with any other GM model...

    Hi I have a problem with my window switch on the drivers side of my 2004 9-3 Saloon. The module has 4 switches for each of the windows. I have taken the switch out and the part number on the back of the module is 12805697 (Motorola P/N SAAB015A11). This doesn't seem to exist anywhere! Can...
  10. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Hi, The Clutch Master Cylinder has failed on my 9-3. I'm in the process of dismantling it, but the Haynes talks about removing steering columns, looms, pedal assy etc. - I can't believe it's so bad - my 9000 was just a couple of bolts in the engine bay and it was off!! Has anyone done the...

Finally, has anyone successfully modified a ‘similar’ master cylinder and if so, can you either email details or are you able to...
  12. Saab 95 & 96 Two stroke and V4 (1949 - 1980)
    I own a 1966 SAAB 96 Two-Stroke, triple carb long nose car with the standard for that year 4 speed gearbox. It has stood for many a year and is now very close to being put through an MOT. The brake master cylinder is unserviceable for a couple of reasons. One is lack of use and the other is...
  13. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    Just in case I hit any unforeseen problems - how straightforward is it to get the clutch master cyl off, and rebuilt? It seems fairly tight down there - what have I got to remove to get access? I hear its difficult to bleed too - will an Eezibleed do the job?
  14. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)

  16. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My clutch bite is practically on the carpet and after some research have discovered it's probable that the clutch master cylinder needs either replacing or overhauling. I have seen overhaul kits of rubbers and seals but was wondering how difficult it is to do this and whether you need any...
  17. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I have just experienced brake failure for the first and hopefully last time. Went to brake and the pedal went straight to floor. Luckily this happened at very low speed and i had room to come to a stop with the hand brake. Only 20 minutes earlier and i was 70-80 on dual carriage way ...

    I finally got the right ms for the job from Phil Smith of sheffield , the little black box (tcs ) made all the difference, funny as I don't have tcs anymore suppose therefore there must be an inter-relation between tcs abs ecus, still back on the road and stopping well!! Thanks for all the ideas...
