Saab 9-3 Brakes slipped,

305

Asked by Jan 31, 2014 at 07:18 PM about the 2006 Saab 9-3 2.0T

Question type: General

Hi,

My 2006 Saab 9-3 brakes slipped as I applied the brakes at a traffic light. Instead of the
car stopping completely it moved forward and hit the bumper of car in front of me.

It never behaved like this before and I know that there is something wrong. I am now still
driving the car but maintaining a distance to other cars.

What could the cause possibly be? Could there be some kind of leak in the fluid or air.

Please advise. Thanks.

Gordon

Either your pads are so worn down, or the calipers aren't grabbing, or a leak like you said. Don't continue to drive the car in this state, get them inspected ASAP.

Thank you for the advice. Could it also be a leak from the air as I believe the brakes also work on vacuum air? Best Regards.

Yes, the brake booster might have a leak requiring replacement or one of the hoses.
