I'm glad the 405 is running well now.
That C5 is very appealing. Waft.

Came back from Aberdeen last night, set cruise to 61mph and observed the inside lane.

 

Amazingly comfortable and very serene.....

Had long been periodically experiencing a sticky caliper on the 405, usually after it sat for a while. 

 

Procured new disks and pads and set about changing them last night. 

 

Was coming apart reasonably easy until NSF caliper screw put up a fight;

Moving onto the OSF, I was quite glad to be doing this job when I seen the state of the pads*, mortifying. Other side still had a fair bit of meat on them, so

One pin on each side was stuck solid, liberal cleaning and greasing of the pins and pad carriers followed.

Fitted the new discs, used a rewind tool and exercised the caliper somewhat. At this stage I was getting ready to fit the pads and be done.

Only to discover I'd got the wrong fucking pads... Seems they decided to build the 405 of that year with one of three different caliper interchangeably, I'd of course guessed wrong. New pads ordered but job won't be completed til Saturday, still, got plenty done.

The Saab, touch wood, has been exceptional in my tenure. I've just kept an eye on levels and enjoyed it. Will give it a service either this weekend or next and hopefully have many more miles of sensible driving ahead.

That Saab is looking lovely but bloody hell on those brakes. I thought the rear pads that came off the Galaxy and the fronts on Imp's Jag were low but I've used thicker bits of stuff to shim my kitchen worktop level than that in your hand.

 

Just in time springs to mind.

I agree, I was mortified. The caliper had long been a bit sticky, but fine after a short run.

Braking performance did degrade suddenly on my last drive in it, almost as if it had jettisoned its friction material...

Those pads are without any doubt the worst I've ever seen! Pretty scary actually...

Well, got the right pads. Suspect they weren't manufactured all that recently...

Finally invested in a caliper rewind tool... Certainly beats my old method of shoving it back in with a big crowbar.

Cleaning the guide pins and exercising the caliper seems to have done the trick, no longer sticking.

MGFs make excellent shelves.

Those pads looks rather similar to the ones I took off the back of my Civic with the stuck calipers.
