    Default Caliper carrier question

    I need to ask those who know.

    In my Saab the 9-5 Aero had a 308mm disc the other models had the 286mm disc from memory.
    The calipers from ATE were identical regardless but the carrier was the only different item.

    Can I do this to my car? can I buy the carrier?

    Not from the 9-5 mate as they won't fit the Vec, it's the 9-3 thats the same

    Thats what I was getting at, if all I need is a carrier what one? as the 9-5 is more akin to a Vectra-B chassis I know so doesn't cross over.

    Has anyone done this job and can I buy the carrier from a dealer?

    Are you using the 9-5 as an example, where you can switch carriers but keep the same caliper, rather than asking of 9-5 brakes will fit the Vec-C? If so, the answer is still no unfortunately; all the calipers (285, 302, 314 & 345) differ - it's not just the carriers that are different.

    Oh drat!!!

    It was the 9-5 as an example, I wondered if I could use my vectra caliper and a larger carrier to fit a 314mm.
