Question about 1995 Saab 9000
I have a 1995 Saab. While I was driving, the brake pedal went all the way to the floor and I couldnt stop right away. It was making this ginding noise coming from the front end of the car. So I went to continue to drive it, and it got so bad that the car acted like it was in Park and I litterally had to stomp on the gas to get it to move. I had to have it towed. When I got it home and took off the front wheels, I found that my callabers were scraping the inside wheel and had rusted the roters to where the brake pads where at. I cant get the callabers down, it looks like someone bent them and I cant get my tire back on. What do I do now?
Crack the bleed nipple on the caliper. Then with a strong large screw driver wedge it between the disc and the brake pad. This should push back the caliper. Now tighten up the bleed screw Work the caliper free or replace. Have some pressing the brake peddle as you open and close the bleed nipple, this will free up the caliper and tell you if it is working. Do not let the piston come all the way out. Then change the disc and pads.
