does anyone know where i can find a rear brake caliper bracket? mine is messed up and i need a new one to replace it.
lol i got a haynes i wish i had a shop manual i couldent find one. if you can get me the electronic shop manual that would be great, and an epc but is the epc general gm? or just saab?Workshop Information System. Basically a service manual, but its the one your dealer would use. EPC is the parts catalog. PM me, I can fill in better for you how to find these. be advised to use them you need Windows, Mac OS X won't work.
This happened to me when I replacing brakes but I was able to take it off and put it back on. When I go to change brakes next time I will certainly need to replace the bracket as well. Seems this is a trouble some area I thought it was only me haha.i have access to a WIS but not sure how to pull part numbers out of it.
I'm also looking for a p/n for the right rear carrier bracket... stripped the carrier bolts out of mine last night trying to finish a brake job in the dark. :x
exact same thing happened to me wtf,---- and volcom its rear right or passanger and my brakes are vented----. Yeah what happened was i put my pads on wrong on one side and realized it half way done, i said what ever then i went to the other side which was competly easy i got the bottom bolt in for the caliper. Then i went to the top bolt and it looked lined up and i started screwing and i was like omfg wtf!!!! because the bolt was screwing in to the left. So i pulled it out tried again and it still wouldnt work then finally i took a look at it and said screw it and i took a head stud (lol) and stuck it in there and put the plastic cap back on. sooooooo right now i am definantly not trusting of my rear brakes they are a little.. looseThis happened to me when I replacing brakes but I was able to take it off and put it back on.

Best way to get your part # is contact PFS and give them your vin and what you need.
yeah agree i was thinking about calling a local junk yard that apprently has a whole assembly used for 60 bucks and seeing if i couldent just get the bracket. its not worth paying 160 bucks for a new caliper assembly that i am not even going to use. and volcolm if you wana take pics thats cool.patcotaco: i believe the dealership is the only place to go - i've checked everywhere online, and have called all the local parts suppliers.
you can buy a "semi-loaded" or "loaded" caliper which I'm told comes with the brakcet attached, but that seems like a waste (IMHO)
