Question about 2007 Saab 9-3 Aero Convertible
I am replacing rear brake pads on SAAB 93 2.0t 2007 model and cylinder are not movable. How to push in the rear brake cylinder when changing the rear brake pads?
I have a 2004 SAAB 93 and just finished replacing the brake pads and rotors yesterday. On the piston itself you should have two little notches. You can either or a GM rotor reset tool that will push into the two little notches and push against the piston while rotating it clock wise. Or the way that I did it was to take a C clamp and put the caliper back on the car. Clamp it on the back of the caliper to the front of the caliper so it will remain stationary. Then take a pair of needle nose pliers and rotate the two notches clockwise while pushing into the caliper. It will take some strength but you should be able to push them in. Be sure that you spray the boot around the piston when some WD 40 so it does not crack and or break during the process. If you have any additional questions about this feel free to email me.

I'm not sure about your vehicle but some models must be turned as they go back.
