  1. 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...
  2. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I'm looking to buy some new rotors and pads, Amazon has a drilled power sport kit for 250 but the details aren't too descriptive. All it specifies is that the fronts are 302 mm which matches my caliper stamp (no door code on my 2005 9-3 aero) has anyone else bought these?
  3. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So I was working on changing my rear brake pads and not having a good time. Trying to wind the caliper back when I noticed brake fluid starting to leak out . Turns out I had accidently gotten a small tear in the boot of the piston. My question is how screwed am i? I taped over the hole with...
  4. 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...

    Hey everybody, My next project for the summer is to change out the FRONT BRAKE PADS and ROTORS for my 01 9-3 5sp vert. Never did brakes before, but I feel pretty competent and confident I can do it. I'm having a little trouble researching which brand of rotors and pads to get. I'd like to...

  10. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi folks, sorry about being a fair weather member, I gotta pop in more often, anyway, I think I got the wrong rotors from 'the rack' for the front of my '04 Arc. This is the first time I've messed with my front rotors and I can't figure out if I've got the wrong rotors or if my hub and rotor...
  11. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey guys, I need to purchase new brake pads and rotors for my 2003 9-3 Vector. Is it a bad idea to purchase rotors online? And should I upgrade to drilled and slotted brakes? I'd like the better stopping performance, and also like the look. Thanks :cheesy:
  12. 9-5 Workshop
    I've searched the forum and can't seem to find out what the thickness tolerance is for front and rear brake rotors. :confused: I'm replacing the pads and just want to make sure the rotors are not too worn. I'll need to borrow a tool to measure thickness from work - unless you all can...

  15. 9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Hello All, I recently had my rotors treated for my 2005 Saab 9-5. I was a bit short on cash at the time, so I bought cheap rotors. I painted them with brake paint since they did not have a protective coating on them. But, before I did that I had them cryo treated by Nitrofreeze Cryogenic...
  16. 9-5 Workshop
    I just ordered some new Zimmerman rotors because the rotors I currently have are warped pretty badly (lots of vibration when stopping). My question is do I need to get new pads? I replaced the pads about a year (~15,000 miles) ago and have heard mixed opinions on whether its necessary to...
  17. 9-5 Workshop
    Hello Guys, Hope everyone is doing well. I was just at the dealer last week and was told I need front brakes. I knew this as my indy had told me I needed new pads and rotors at 65k miles. The front brakes were last replaced at 36k miles when I purchased CPO. I don't feel like paying and...
  18. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hello once again. I recently reached the 90k km on my odometer and it is time to change my braking setup (rotors and pads). I have been hearing a lot of good feedback from R1 concepts. I have visited their site and found some incredibly good prices on drilled and slotted rotors along with 4...
