Thanks TW bud, looked a bit of a pain to get to the handbrake microswitch.
Will have to do it if it will fail though.

Count your blessings sir. A minor bump in the road of what will be another potential blissful year of Saab motoring and ownership.

They always do.
Before the test yank the handbrake up and down 50 times.
Often works.

Wife's hyundai failed, cv boot and anti roolbar like required. Unfortunately the ABS light failed to go out. No fault codes listed. It's been a random fault for a few years. I did reset the ABS connector and it seems much improved with the light coming on twice for only a few seconds. Retest on Friday!

Should be a great end to the week and a fantastic way to start the weekend.

Hope so, hoping that the ABS light stays off
