Any one know where I'll source a front, right brake caliper for my '97 2.3 lpt cse, auto?
I tried the elkparts site but strangely they don't seem to sell 'em.
Ideally I'd like a reconditioned/exchange part to save dosh ( scottish you see)

German, Swedish and French do calipers on an exchange basis http://www.saabscene.com/forum/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif

E-Bay is always worth checking (wife needed a rear one for her Audi)-new around £90. Got a good one (i.e. from a low mileage car) all working, seals good for £15 plus postage.

I had a replacement caliper from email@example.com ( they are a saab specialist in Bristol ). Cost me about £35-00 and even had a nice new set of pads in it. Arrived the next day.
Sorry don't have phone number to hand.

What's wrong with yours? If the piston is not scored or damaged, why not consider getting a rebuild kit, which I think basically includes all the rubber parts? This would probably be the cheapest option of all. Elkparts can supply IIRC.
