About Brake Pedals
The Saab brake pedal is a metal pedal located inside the vehicle on the driverside and is depressed by the driver’s foot to apply the brakes and stop the vehicle. The Saab brake pedal is attached to a rod which in turn is attached to the brake master cylinder. This cylinder creates the necessary pressure in the brakes to activate them. When the driver depresses the brake pedal it causes a brake pad to rub on the brake disk and create friction, slowing down the vehicle.
The Saab brake pedal is quite sturdy and isn’t prone to failure, however the top plate of the pedal which is depressed by the driver can become worn and make it difficult to brake without the foot slipping. The Saab brake pedal can also give you a good indication of any other brake issues in your vehicle. For example, if your brake pedal goes straight down to the floor or is loose it could indicate either a failed master cylinder or damage to the push rod. This metal rod is attached to the brake pedal and allows the pedal to be depressed. Damage to these components can cause brake failure.
- The Saab car badge is a very stylized version of the wing from an aeroplane.
- If you were buying yourself a Saab before 1952, you had the colour choices of green, green, and… green. It wasn't until 1952 that Saab started offering other colours for car buyers.
- The Monte Carlo Rally is always a big deal, but the first Saab to win the event was in 1929, with a Swedish-born woman behind the wheel. Greta Molander went to take the Ladies Cup in a Saab in 1952.
- There was lots of controversy over the Saab 93 in Sweden. Not so much the car itself, but the marketing for the vehicle clearly showed a young couple in bed together, but the woman wasn't wearing a wedding ring. Complaints poured in from shocked Swedes, and Saab hastily added a wedding ring.
- The Saab 900 was built between 1978 and 1993 and is the best selling Saab ever. In that time, it sold a total of 980,817 cars, around half of which were the convertible model. They can still be seen on UK roads very regularly.
