Thanks Keith! They seemed very competent, and have worked on a few Saabs, but that wrinkle may have escaped them - the handbrake hadn't been effective for months before the pads were replaced, but should have been afterwards if they really knew what they were doing! So I guess the answer is nope! I followed the link, but the 4mm Allen adjuster isn't clearly located - I'm assuming its on the back of the calliper opposite to the piston, probably centre of the lever to which the handbrake cable is attached. I'm also assuming that the handbrake cable can most easily be adjusted from inside the car - at least in our snow and no garage! any thoughts?
