  1. 1987 900S Clutch, Throwoutbearing, Master Cylinder

    C900 Workshop
    Hi all, picked up an '87 900S 16V 2 door sedan(notchback?) a couple months back. Pretty rare I think! Anyways, it was driving and shifting fine until about 2 weeks ago I started to hear the throwout bearing squeal. It had always had a pretty soft clutch but when the throwout bearing started to...
  2. Can't bleed brakes at caliper, suspect Master Cylinder

    C900 Workshop
    Greetings everyone. Brief history of my braking woes: I had a bad brake line over a month ago that ruptured under hard braking. I replaced the bad line and bled the caliper (rear left). The brakes worked after this, but the pedal was lower than usual. I drove like this for awhile until the...
  3. 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...

    Hey everybody! I would appreciate any help with the following problem. I have an 03 vector that we bought at an insurance auction. We did an engine swap and replaced pads and rotors.

  6. 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...

    C900 Workshop
    One day this winter dad went to drive the 89 900 convertible, but when he pressed the clutch pedal it went straight to the floor, lifelessly, without any resistance. After some research my dad bought a new clutch master cylinder, and once I came home from college I installer the little bugger...

    9-5 Workshop
    Replaced Rotors and pads all around, then my right front caliper stuck and started smoking. Replaced caliper and hose as i thought the hose might have been old and it was not allowing the caliper to release. Come to find out the caliper and hose were fine, it was that the brake booster got...

    I parked my car and when I came back 2 hours later I went to depress the clutch and there was no resistance at all! The clutch will not engage so moving the shifter is impossible. I checked the brake/ clutch fluid level and it looks muddy but the level is correct. I have no idea what to do! I...
  10. Can I test the manual transmission when the clutch master cylinder is out

    C900 Workshop
    Hello, I've had an itch to buy a saab 900 for awhile now. Unfortunately they usually cost quite a bit more than the book value here in Seattle. I was going to go check out somebody's car tomorrow. She says the clutch master cylinder and the alternator are out. I was thinking about buying a...
  11. Clutch pedal travel

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Recently on my 1999 9-3 SE the clutch pedal doesnt return to the original position after shifting. There is about 2" of play before the pedal reaches resistance from the master cylinder. The are no problems with shifting. Do I need to replace just the pedal or the master cylinder or is it...
