ATE embossed on caliper..Also..per BillJ's thread recently, and his web-site, the older Girling caliper only requires lower guide bolt removal and then can hindge up to remove pads - easiest BillJ has done (like a Mitsubishi I once had). Newer ATE caliper requires both guide bolts to ber removed to remove pads.

Notes:
1) Saab pads are Textar (as per my old set and new set). My new Disks (Norrbit) and Pads Saab/Textar radically improved the breaking compared to the older worn disks (3mm down on each side)/pads (4mm left)!

2) Full set of front disks and pads cost me £75 inclusive!! (although I did a deal which meant I didn't pay postage).

3) New Saab 9-5 & 9-3 disk pads have GM stamped on them! Wonder if these are Textar too??
