  1. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello, I'm driving 2003 9-5 Aero. She drives cool and everything is fine except shitty brakes. When I brake hard(hard enough to activate ABS), suddenly front RH brake locks up. Even I pull the brake pedal off, brake is keeping locked up for a sec, and then released. It seems like rear LH brake...
  2. 9-5 Workshop
    Since I own my 9-5 I get the BLF message each time I start my car (which I delete), and most times the Cruise Control won't work until I lift the brake pedal. Sometimes when I have the CC on and drive over rougher roads the CC goes off and needs to be reactivated after lifting the brake pedal...

  5. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi, I'm having trouble with the brakes binding on my 2006 9-3 cabrio, resulting, as you'd expect, in the wheels getting very hot. It's mainly the front 2, but to a lesser extent the rear drivers, with the worst of all being passenger front, so diagonally opposite) I've checked (or had...

    I'm replacing the MC on a 2009 9-3 SportCombi Aero XWD. I have the old MC removed but I'm not sure whether to attempt to bench bleed the new MC before installation. The WIS does not say anything about bench bleeding and it appears that the MC must be bolted on before installing the fluid...

  9. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    A couple weeks ago I stopped at a light when driving home in my 2004 9-3 linear. When I went to pull away the passenger side tire started making a knocking sound each revolution which gats worse with speed. So far I have put the spare on to see if it was the tire but it did not help. When I...

  13. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello! First time poster here. My brake booster needs replacing, but unsure about wich booster fits my 2003 2.0t 9-5 sedan. I've read in a few forum posts that there is two models, one before 2003 and one after. I'm looking at a used one from 2008 that looks to be in good condition But the...
  14. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I'm in the process of changing my discs and the old discs at the rear are of the vented variety. Can you just simply fit solid discs with the existing caliper? Also are the brake pads the same for vented and solid discs? Thanks,
  15. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So I just did my front rotors and pads on my 04 vert (302mm). I used Zimmerman coated rotors with Akebono pads. I did the rears a few weeks ago with ATE Premium One rotors/Akebono pads as well as rebuilt calipers due to a frozen caliper. Before I did the fronts I had a slight scraping sound on...
  16. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello all, I am replacing the rear passenger caliper on my 2000 9-3. It's different than calipers I have replaced on other cars because it doesn't have a mounting bracket and slide pins, just a piston on either side of the rotor. Also, it doesn't have a flex hose connecting to it, just the...
  17. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey, I've been going through hell over the last few months with my brake booster. At first It was collecting oil from a slowly failing vacuum pump. I followed some advice and installed a check valve between the booster and the vacuum pump so that the vacuum could lower the pressure in the...

    Hey, So I've got the old "oil in the brake booster" problem - and all the built up oil is being sucked into the intake manifold when its at low pressure and burning off once the engines hot enough, dumping giant clouds of blue. I started by replacing the nipple for the connection to the intake...
  19. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi. Before I go for the problem, I want to ask a question. Does SAAB 9-5 with AT brake pedal must be as soft as with manual? Because my father was saying that my brake pedal was very hard (that was before my problem). So, I have a SAAB 9-5 MY2000 with AT. A few days back I lost my braking...
