Subject: Re: How tough is it to replace rear calipers on a 1990 C900?


Dave, Sorry I wasn't more specific. My sister in law had her front brakes replaced at the local midas shop. The front brakes and rotors replaced w/o a hitch, and she was also advised to do the rears as well. When they went to replace them, they told her that both calipers had seized up. There's no brake fluid leaking out or anything like that.. so I'm fairly certain that the brake lines are still good. It seems it was this way since she got the car.. as the rear pads were the originals.(saab original part #'s on them and all). Since they were going to rape her on parts and labor, she opted to drive the car back home and park it... and have me take care of it. This is why I asked how tough it was. She has another car she can drive(the in laws have a few of them) until she's able to get going again. Anything special I need to know? Do I need to pressure bleed the brakes? etc?
