Hi,
Try Eurocarparts at Wembley (Tel 020 89565000) around £60 each, or any branch of Partco, or Lucas Service.
Hope that helps.

Hi Pete
Thanks for your advice.

Is there any place to buy second-hand 'hand' brake calipers or is it wise to buy new?

Hi again,
Personally, I wouldn't risk 2nd hand. If you know what you're doing, overhaul kits can be obtained from Lucas Service. Depends if you trust yourself with this safety critical repair really!

To suppliment Petes info:

Eurocarparts are now inline at:
www.eurocarparts.com

Prices must have dropped as the latest 2001 catalogue price Guttman new 9000 brake front disc at £17 to £19 + vat each. So £50 should get you a pair.

Textar are £24 + vat each, and rear discs are £17+ vat each.

I wouldn't recommend second hand, especially when new is so cheap.

Being in North London, your spoilt for choice for non-franchised Saab specialists with:
Neo bross in Waltham Abbey and

2 Stroke to Turbo in Potters bar: www.twostroke.co.uk

All three of these Saab suppliers sell OEM parts, or equivalent, for up to 50% less than main dealers!!!

B-regards,
...Paul
