  1. Crazy thunking sound and vibration coming from passenger side wheel? Already replaced hub assembly.

    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...

  5. Help choosing correct brake booster / servo

    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...
  6. Vented to Solid rear brake discs

    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,
  7. Front Brake Backing plate - scraping after new rotors/pads

    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...
  8. Replacing rear passenger caliper on 2000 9-3

    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...
  9. Brake Booster Issues

    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...
  10. Brake Booster Oil & Vacuum Pump

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    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...
  11. SAAB 9-5 Aero MY2000 Brake loss

    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...

  14. One-sided parking brake & unequal clamping pressure

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I feel like this one should be easy unless there is some adjustment or quirk I'm missing. My parking brake slowly stopped working. I adjusted tension and found that parking cables and caliper levers move properly but that only right side caliper engages. Lifted the back-end and had the wife...
  15. Brake Pedal continuously flat on first try

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    For the longest time the brake pedal on my ARC has been really flat compared to the other cars I have. I recently had to change the rear rotors and pads so why not do a complete fluid flush with Pentosin DOT4 while I had the wheels off. I've had the car for a little over a year so I didn't...

  18. floppy clutch

    C900 Workshop
    I just purchased a 1987 900 Turbo convertible, my first Saab. The engine runs great, a little clunky on the suspension. The clutch pedal drops to the floor board with no effort and springs right back up. I bled the clutch and worked great for 60 miles, I did it again and it ran for about 6...

    9-5 Workshop
    When the brake pedal is released, there is a hissing noise that can be heard in the cabin and from the engine compartment. As soon as i press the brake again it stops. It used to be very loud, but now it is just a faint hissing. Any ideas? The sound is coming from the driver's side, right near...
  20. Engine stalls when applying brakes

    9-5 Workshop
    Hi there, I've done a couple of searches but I'm really stuck as to what's making my lovely Saab 9-5 2-0t Automatic (2004) stall when brakes are applied. My first notion was that the Cranckshaft Position Sensor was screwed (again), but the symptoms are different this time around. The...
