    Hello, so today i was replacing my brake caliper on the rear drivers side on my 2004 Saab 9-3 Sportsedan, and due to the handbrake cable being rusted onto to the caliper i decided to replace that too. The installation went well and i seem to have done everything correctly. The only problem is...

  4. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have a 1998 900 SE hatch. Parking brake cable was replaced, but adjusted all the way in the brake shoes (4838660) still don't grab. I was told the shoe size changed (got bigger) somewhere around 1998-1999, but the EPC part numbers are the same for shoes 1994-2002. Can anyone shed some light?

    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...

    I want to fit new cables to the rear brakes of my 93 Tid (2006 model). I can see how to do it all except that I need to slacken-off the cable adjuster under the centre arm-rest. There's a 13 mm hex screw that does the job. The question is how do I know how far I can unscrew it? If I go too far...

    I couldn't find anything on this so a note about my experience of the job might be useful. In this case the cables themselves were still working OK, but the rear calipers needed to be replaced due to corrosion, and the cables were corroded into the calipers. So I put the angle grinder...

    Gents, I have a problem with my handbrake. During the bi-annual Swiss test they remarked that the handbrake has more than a 30% difference between the left and right back wheel when the handbrake is engaged. This has to be sorted or I will not be allowed to drive the car... I tried this...
  9. NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi All, A couple of months ago, the handbrake on my 97 NG900 started getting looser and looser to the point where it now doesn't do a thing anymore (ie, if I pull it all the way up, the car will still roll down a gentle slope). While it doesn't bother me at the moment, it's something I want...
