    Hi,

    You have the 17 inch brakes, not the 17+ brakes so your Saab part number should be 13 237 753 for the pads.

    I had problems when installing my pads, had to grind them down a millimeter to fit in the calipers.(at the ends)

    I hope you sort it out.

    Regards

    Wow, so much I didn't know, what a resource, thank YOU, Vector! How many miles on your 9-5?

    I have TTiD, ECO stage 1, diesel, Vector, navi etc. a bit less equipped than a top Aero, but a lots of extras, first owner since 2012, 160k km. Going now for the turbo rebuild, new oil lines, bit and pieces here and there. Fixed 3rd brake light with an original solution, also tail LEDs...very happy with the car ever since I got it.

    Thanks, Jan, will forward part number to the brake pad supplier and pray! BTW, ordered the Brembo rotors as you suggested, thank you!

    I've just hit 97K miles. Hope I'm not due for a turbo rebuild or new oil lines yet! Sounds like a great car, Vector. I'll probably be in touch when my tail LEDs go for ideas on how to fix. Thanks for your help with the VIN search for options/parts!
