13.02.2006: New line
Install the new line. It's easier to bolt the hard lines on before the retainers are secured. In addition, the top end nut on new lines was too small so it kept slipping through the hole in its bracket, and it took some creativity to hold it in place.

Googridge stainless brake line installation on a 1996 Saab 900 (applies to all 1994-1998 900 and 1999-2002 9-3). This installation was prompted by a cracked brake line, but is usually performed to enhance the braking performance of the car.

  • 19 mm wrench: brake line nuts (for Goodridge kit);
