Brake pad job went well - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
Replaced all pads with Bosch. Rented caliper tool from Auto Zone for $60 deposit. It turns the piston back while applying pressure. I did not replace rotors and had to remove 5 oz. of brake fluid with turkey baster device. I estimate it took 20 minutes per wheel. One brake pad spring would not come out of the caliper body on passenger side rear. I got the pad off fine and bent it back into shape over new pad. Satisfaction and saved $400 in labor.
