Saab Brake Disk Parts
Saab made its presence known in the auto market over 50 years ago out of Scandinavia, manufacturing unique and creatively engineered vehicles. Saab has always represented quality driven parts in all of their products, and even their brake disk parts and components. Any of your Saab’s brake parts are vulnerable to becoming faulty over time and the issue should be taken care of immediately. Disc brakes can show some noticeable symptoms of damage if you know what to look for. Inspect your Saab’s dashboard for a brake light indicator as a trouble code. This type of warning light means you should take immediate action. Keep an ear out for any abnormal noises coming from the brakes through common driving conditions. Disc brakes that have become worn out or overheated can produce numerous sounds. When your Saab’s brake pads overheat and become glazed, they usually will create squeaky noise when they are applied. This is most noticeable during gradual braking. Disc brake pads that have worn out after their lining limits will make louder swishy sounds or grinding. Next, put your Saab into park and loosen the lug nuts on one tire. Raise it up with a floor jack and put it on two jack stands beneath the frame by your front wheels. Finish taking off the lug nuts and take off the wheel and put it aside. Carefully inspect the pad’s thickness between the calipers and make sure to look inside the pad, as well. FCP Euro has an immense stock of Saab brake disk parts and components, including all parts for Saab’s vehicles.

You can now carefully test the disc rotor on your Saab. It should have a smooth and shiny surface. There should be any grooves on its surface area. Deep grooves usually show up as parallel lines and will show that the rotor surface has made contact with the pad rivets. Deep grooves in your Saab’s brake disc rotor can bring on lockup and brake shimmying, as well as a noisy grinding when you brake hard. Disc rotors have a minimum thickness requirement and have to be measured with a micrometer. Any grooved disc rotor must be taken off and rotated on a lathe or replaced if too much metal is gone. Inspect the brake caliper. The caliper holds the brake fluid that puts pressure on your Saab’s pads to grab your rotor. The piston inside moves the pressure, but it has seals to keep the fluid inside the caliper piston bore. Any brake fluid leakage around the rubber boots in the bore highlights that your vehicle’s seals have worn down. Brake fluid will infect the pads, forcing slippage, glazing and burning. If this type of leak occurs it means your Saab’s calipers need be replaced. FCP Euro's fervent call center team is continuously here and waiting to help out with any support or questions you have.
