Saab bleed differently from other vehicle, u will need to start at LF wheel then move to the RR wheel then back to the front RF wheel, then last LR wheel THAT IS THE RECOMMENDED bleed process, what method r u using to bleed system, hydraulic , or manual [foot pumping]

Also did u remove calipers any, if so there come with a lleft & a right, so do not mix them up, bleeding nipple should be on top, if nipple is at the bottom it will not bleed & hold pressure any, just saying so check.
