Help with SAAb brakes : LUSENET : Vintage Saab FAQ : One Thread

Does anyknow if there is a special procedure to change the front brake pads? I have any 87 SAAB and I am unable to put the new pads on as there is not enough room. I pushed the cylinder in as far as it can go but it won't go any further?

Please help
