My brakes on the 99 Turbo started dying last Friday. Life was peachy one minute and then all of a sudden I’ve got a very stiff pedal but no stopping power. In a city of hills like Hobart, this can be a real problem.
Turns out it was a stuffed brake booster. Quotes to recondition: $400.
Good 2nd hand part at Saabwreck in Melbourne: $77.
I can honestly say that Saabwreck have never, ever, let me down. If you need some bits here in southern Oz, they are worth a call.
