Default Correct Pads

Hi All

Does anyone know how to judge correct pads for front Disc's?

I know your supposed to measure the disc but i cant be 100% without taking wheel off

there's a stamp on the caliper 28/60 if that means anything

Aero 04 Model 2.0T if that makes any difference

Thanks in advance

Try using the Application/Fitment guides at Tire Rack or any manufacturer like EBC. Or just look on Genuinesaab.com or the Saabsite.com for your model and the size will be there.

OP is in the UK so Tire Rack etc is not much help... Would be better looking here-

There were 2 sizes of disc fitted to the Aeros - 302mm and 314mm. Pretty sure the UK Aero's only got the 314mm and as such need the Aero only pads as above, but as they say the only way to be 100% sure is to measure the size of the disc.

Late 2004 Aero cars came with the smaller brake discs so make sure they are correct, one of the main reasons i have held onto my 2004 Aero over a new car is the bigger brakes (314mm) they are now only on the 2.8 Aero as opposed to the 2.0 version.
