    Default Todays spur of the moment job was....

    To strip - clean and re-fit my rear brakes on my Saab 9-3 2.2 TiD. Re adjusted the rear shoes (oh they are fun) and adjusted up the handbrake cable..

    Whilst I was there - I also changed the brake fluid for some nice freash fluid bleeding through all 4 courners and the clutch.

    Now I have a handbrake which is always handy

    Rear shoes? How old is your car?

    LOL - its a 2002..

    Its the same setup as the vec b.. Rear discs and pads for the brake pedal - but on the inside of the discs there are a set of shoes that only operate via the handbrake.
