As long as the hydraulics are not opened, you do not have to bleed the system. When changing the brake pads, you can compress the caliper pistons back into the calipers without opening the hydraulic portion of the system. However, you may want to crack open the bleeder screw on the caliper to make it easier to collapse the piston, but even in that case, the system should not require bleeding.

no, if you've ever bled brakes, use the same method you used before. it should work fine.

Not unless they were added by someone as an aftermarket accessory. Pretty much, only the F700 and above were made available with air brakes.

Are they drum? If so they need to be cleaned and adjusted. Ensure there are no leaks.

Illegal to do without being certified to adjust and repair air brakes. Sorry, but we're not allowed to answer this question here.

You can purchase a Hyanes repair maunal for about 10 dollars. It will have pictures and step by step instructions on how to repair your brakes.

from the furthest caliper from the master cylinder. Start with that one and move closer.

maybe amended but not be replaced, as we are not changing the form of government

There could be many reasons. Did you do the work yourself? If not, take your car back to the shop. If so, did you remember to bleed the brakes? Air bubbles in the brake line could be the problem...

#15 ... Barry wore #15 in 1986 and 1987 before changing to #11 in 1988. Kurt Stillwell wore #11 in 1986 and 1987. He was traded after the 1987 season and Larkin changed to #11.

Like all cars, Saab 900s have brakes. The calipers are part of the braking system. The braking system was basically the same on all Saab 99s and 900s from 1975 to 1987. What's the question?

Well, if pulling the "brake release" lever doesn't work... don't know what to tell you

try changing the flexible brake line Is the rim rubbing on something? Perhaps check the bearings, or CV joints. E brake on. Tranny in nuetral. Raise up front. Manually spin the wheel by hand. While spinning, check to see if there is any resistance. Sometimes the pistons get stuck in the applied position due to grit. Maybe fluid is not bleeding back quickly enough when brakes are released thus still applying partial pressure.

i have seen the flex hoses collapse if some one has pinched them off to stop fluid loss during service of calipers if you open the bleeder screws and the brakes release you will need to release the flex hosesI have an '88 Dakota that had the same problem. I changed the calipers which didn't help, so I checked the master cylinder and found out the piston had seized up. I put a new one on and it worked like a charm.

Sounds like a vacuum leak - check the hoses to the vacuum actuated motors under dash Could be a bad check valve in the vacuum booster (for brakes)

1987 flip up what? There may be a trim ring around the light that has to come off first.

If the brakes are disk on the rear they can't be push or pressed in they have to be screwed in by turning the piston clock wise try this it should work. That is what I did on my 1994 Nissan Maxima becareful not to damage the rubber dust boot on the piston.

Sounds to me like you have a lot of questions. I think you would be better off taking it to a mechanic or attending a trade school so you can learn to work on cars. Brakes are nothiong to be fooling with, however a good shop manual should help you through your dilema. Go to wherever you bought your brakes and ask for a Haynes manual....

I just changed the brake fluid on my 1987...I bought two quarts and have most of one of 'em left, and I bled each wheel twice. I have a power bleeder, though; if you're changing it with the two-person method - one sitting in the car pumping the brakes, one at the wheels with a wrench and bottle - you'll use two quarts.
