Saab Brake Caliper Parts
Saab joined the auto industry over 50 years ago and began designing vehicles with consistent innovations and engineering. This brought them a well-known and revered vehicle line, all built with a loyalty to the environment. Saab’s has always been known for their quality vehicles and products, and even their brake caliper parts and components. Your Saab’s brake caliper pistons can stick. This can bring about premature wearing of your brake pads. In order to correctly troubleshoot this issue, first start your Saab up and let go of the clutch slowly for standard transmissions or release the brake pedal for automatic transmissions. If it rolls slowly, push your brake down hard and let it move slowly forward again. If you notice it is sluggish or is not moving at all after the brakes have been pushed, this usually means sticky calipers. Next, take your Saab for a drive and press the brakes in a low-traffic area while holding the steering wheel. Apply the brakes a couple of times. This will heat the brakes up on the wheel with the damaged caliper piston, which help us figure it out. Park and put your hand close to each tire without touching the rim. If one rim has heat coming from it after the drive, this points to a faulty caliper. Put a wheel chock against the exterior tread of a tire on the opposite axle from the brake caliper that may be damaged. Loosen the lug nuts a full turn and lift the quarter of the vehicle with the jack and support it on a jack stand. Let the parts cool and then take off the lug nuts and wheel. Take off the caliper bolts with a wrench or ratchet and socket. FCP Euro has immense selection of Saab brake caliper parts and components, including all parts for Saab’s vehicles.

If the piston of the front caliper of your Saab compresses, then the caliper piston is in good shape. Now, take the caliper off of the knuckle with a pry bar and then hang the caliper on a suspension part to keep away from letting it hang from the hydraulic hose. For pads left on the knuckles, inspect them for any movement across the knuckle, where the backing plates of the pads touch it. A lot of times, pads get dry from heat and exposure and start to stick to the knuckles. This may give a faulty warning sign of sticking calipers.
