  1. 9-5 Workshop
    2003 SAAB 9-5 Aero wagon here. Brake system has TCS/ECS So I just replaced my brake booster/servo and all vacuum lines - including the hard plastic line/assembly with the check valves between the brake booster, throttle body, and vacuum pump - and now I have no power brakes! There's no air in...
  2. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi all, 2003 SAAB Aero wagon question: I just replaced my brake servo (added my two cents to this post here), and discovered that the nipple/fitting on the vacuum pump is broken. I need to replace the entire nipple, and not just the red piece and o-ring (as discussed in other posts). I'm...
  3. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi all, I've read the "Brake Booster 101" post here and the procedure in the WIS, but I'm spun out on whether I have to mess with the ABS and ESP systems. The Booster 101 post I think was written for a 9-5 without ESP if I understand it correctly. The WIS says to remove the ABS unit, and...
  4. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I have Duralast gold on for the front end, I've had them for almost a year and all they do is squeak after a bit of driving! The rest of the braking system has been checked out, rotors are good, pistons are good, everything has a good amount of grease, old brakes didn't squeak but these things...

    I'm in need of a Saab 9000 TCS brake pump. This part is specific to 1994/1995 9000 models with the TCS option.
  6. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey guys, I'm gonna need to replace a lot of parts in my 2001 9-3 Viggen that are either not made or are super expensive. I'm just wondering if anyone can point me towards compatible or generic parts for the following systems (or all the systems): hoses for the oil cooling system (a.k.a. the...
  7. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi everyone. First off, I did try the search feature extensively and could not find a thread about this. I'm sure I am searching wrong because I couldn't really believe no one would have asked this before. I also have downloaded an owners manual which is about 300 pages long and I did not find...
  8. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    So I just bought a 2002 9-3 anniversary convertible, in Australia if that matters, so I'm reading the manual and having a poke around. Pretty neat how many little things have been thought of, and also kinda funny how the manual says things like "if unable to unlock the car with the remote...
  9. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello, i've searched the forums a bit but not found the same problem. All fluids are high but i have a loss of power stearing and brakes. I had a loss of power in the engine and now it barely starts and there is a ratteling noice from the right hand side of the engine compartment.
  10. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi folks, I'm looking for some advice here on my brakes. My car is a 1994 NG900SE 5-door with the V6 engine and manual transmission. I replaced the front pads and bled the brakes last spring. It was fine until this week. Now when I start the car, the brake pedal is very soft and will go 1/2...
  11. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Seemed like my driver caliper was sticking so replaced it. Bled brakes. Took test ride. When I got back had same smell at wheel. Rotor was bit warm. Smelled much lesser smell at other wheels but those rotors were cool. When going up small hills with cruise control on, rpms went up to 4. Does...
  12. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hopefully I've found the correct forum to post my thread. My '96 900 SE Turbo Convertible needs a brake job. I'm not a skilled mechanic, but I've done brake jobs on other cars many times. I did the Googling thing and looked at a few videos of various brake jobs on Saabs, then pulled the rear...
  13. 9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Hey everybody. It's been a very long time since I posted anything, which I think is a good sign and a testament to the longevity of my 2008 9-5, which hasn't needed much but regular oil changes and tires for the last couple of years. Hopefully this doesn't jinx anything. :) I've got one more...
  14. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Ok, let me start a big debate, but let's keep it civil :) Which brake provides the best braking performance for normal and aggressive (track) driving? Either will be better than my single pot 314mm brakes today. 345mm .. single pot with good surface area 314mm Brembo .. dual pot...
  15. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi guys, really would like to beat myself for this rookie mistake but i think could help others: After i changed the serpentine v-belt on my 2008 2.8l SAAB i found that it had some problems. Symptoms rough idle and deep hesitation under heavy acceleration. no ecm codes. Really went mad trying...
  16. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    *edit: 9-3 So after finally solving a slew of other problems, I'm left with one strange one. My brakes have started to not fully return, and they stay engaged slightly when driving around. I've been watching my MPG on the computer go down by .1 MPG daily. It's down to 15 now. Not so great. I...
  17. C900 Workshop
    Hi all, first off, thanks to everyone who posts and replies on these forums. I've saved myself lots of headache and $ because of your generosity with your time and knowledge. However, I've finally encountered a problem that I haven't found posted about before. I just replaced my rear brake...
  18. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I'm getting some wicked shimmy in my front wheels when braking. I pulled the front right rotor off, and it looks like the pad is severely wearing the very inside of the rotor (although there is wear across the entire surface of the rotor. Basically, it looks like the inside surface of the...
  19. 9000 Workshop
    So, my E-brake decided to stop working, right before I need to get the car inspected.. :D I got a video of underneath the car while pulling the e-brake, and it looks like the cable hasn't snapped, as it's moving the mechanism next to the right rear brake. From the video, can anyone give any...
