Very simply get a thin punch or nailset, tap lightly on the pins. They will come partially out the other side. Then pull them out with any decent plier. A little of WD or blaster makes it quicker. Then clean with brake cleaner and reset. Saabs forever. P.S. Is there a wing accessory package so ours too will fly? VVVVVVVVVVrooooooooooooooooommmmmm!
There are several different front brake calipers for the Saab 900 depending on the year. The first is from 1979-1987 and is the same as that on the Saab 99 beginning in 1975. You need a special tool to rotate the caliper piston back into place because the front caliper also acts as the parking brake. From 1988 thru 1993, the front calipers on the Classic 900 are the same as those on the Saab 9000. The NG 900 has a completely different brake caliper setup beginning with the 1994 model.
us Cclamp to retract caliper leave old brake pad in place put clamp over caliper with 1 end on brake pad and the other over caliper back start to tighten very simple.
Take off the brake calipers, but let the brake line be mounted. Attach the caliper to a string so that it does not hang by the brake hose. Take out the old brake pads. Compress the pistons together. You may need a special Saab tool for this. Apply some copper paste or similar grease to the sides of the caliper and mount the new brake pads. Check that everything runs smoothly before mounting everything back together.
It really depends on the year and model as the braking systems are different on different models, and sometimes change over the course of the model. However, since Saabs are Front Wheel Drive, a rear caliper is easier to replace than the fronts. Remove the brake line and parking brake cable (if there is one). Remove the old caliper and install the new one. Re-install the brake line and parking brake pieces. Bleed the brakes.
Very simple buddy, You CAN NOT use the regular method of just pushing the piston back in the caliper. DO NOT TRY you will break your tool!. You must apply the caliper spreader but do not over do the pressure you apply. then take a 14mm wrench or socket and remove the bolt in the back. There is something inside that takes an Allen key to turn. find one that fits and loosen that while tightening the brake spreader, and there you go it should move back into the caliper and if it does not then your caliper needs to be replaced because it is froze.
To change the brake light bulb, first remove the brake light lens. Next, disconnect the wiring connector. Turn the bulb socket counterclockwise to remove it from the lens, and remove the bulb from the socket. Place the new bulb into the socket and put the socket back in the lens. Screw the lens back into place.
You can find the flasher relay switch beneath the drivers side dashboard. The flasher relay switch will be above the brake pedal.
remove spring clip of the front 7mm Allen key socket for sliders BUT a special tool is required a rear brake piston wind back tool with saab/vauxhall attachment a easy job with the right tool clockwise rotation
Before jacking up the car, install Saab spacer tool between the upper control arm and the body. This is important as it preserves a usable angle to remove the axle.Jack up the car and support it on jack stands.Remove wheel, remove brake caliper, remove center axle nut, disconnect the tie rod end, remove upper and lower ball joints from A-arms. Remove hub assembly from the car.Loosen clamp on inner boot. You should now be able to remove the axle.Outer CV joints can be replaced on the axle. Remove the boot, then remove the circlip holding the CV joint to the axle shaft.Use a new boot and new grease when replacing the CV joint.

Wink says: You don't specify a year. The procedures are different depending on the year. A good shop manual will provide the best information. In brief, here is what you do on 1979-87 900s: 1) Jack up front end, set car on jack stands and remove wheel. 2) Remove the parking brake cable from the lever, remove the protective boot, and remove the circlip holding the cable to the yoke. Pull the cable out of the yoke and tie it to the spring. 3) Remove the brake pads. 4) Disconnect the brake fluid hose. Unless you want brake fluid all over your work area, find a way to plug the end. 5) The bolts are on the back side of the caliper, held in place with a locking plate. Knock the tabs from the locking plate back with a screwdriver. Remove the two bolts that hold the caliper to the upright. 6) If the rotors are scored, they need to be replaced as well, along with new brake pads. = = = = = Carlblum says: I have NEVER read a manual or asked anyone how to replace the brakes on any vehcile in the over 20 years of working on vehicles. If you have to get your brakes worked on, and you have no knowledge of vehicle brakes, have someone you know, who knows HOW TO DO IT RIGHT, show you. or Take it to a shop. The most prominent weapon in use in America today is the Automobile. Playing with it, is like playing with a loaded 357 magnum with the hammer cocked.
Same as the front except don't try to compress the caliper. remove the cap that is in back and loosen with an Allen wrenchAfter you've installed the pads and put the caliper back on, retighten that screw in the back of the caliper with the Allen wrench until it is tight again, then back it off a quarter turn. This is to readjust the brakes. If you don;t do this the brakes will be really mushy.AddendumThere is no Allen key or bolt to undo (unlike a Saab 9000). Instead, when the pads have been removed, you need to turn the caliper piston to retract it.Use a pair of pliers direct on the piston and turn clockwise to retract. This works!

There is a special tool specifically made for that but I used a medium sized pry bar (18 inch long, tip is about 3/4 inch wide) all you have to do is put the pry bar flat end or chisel in one of the grooves and rotate the caliper in. If the caliper has a lot of resistance then replace it. It should move very freely with very little resistance. It's called a "loaded caliper". used on rear brakes with integrated e-brake.
