Is there a secret to this? Look at the back of the caliper - is there a 13mm bolt-looking thing? If so (I think the '91 has it), remove that plug (it's just screwed in). Behind it is a hex-head screw that I believe you need a 5mm allen wrench to turn; use that to back off the caliper/pads. > Also, my turbo suddenly quit on me the other day.

Check the pressure side of the turbo to the intake manifold; start at the turbo (cold side); that hose clamp has been known to self-loosen. Dave Hinz
