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.

The dealer near me charges $365 for a 4-cyl, $395 for a 6/8 cyl, or $425 for a 12-cyl. The only actual repair/maintenance you get for that price is an oil change (with Mobil1 and the MB filter, which are CRITICAL, ~$120 on its own) and tire rotation. This makes a lot of people think it's a scam, but really, it's a little steep, but definitely worth doing. The rest of the service consists of a massive inspection of your vehicle covering the following items.
-- Fluid levels
-- Tire tread/pressure/wheel condition
-- Air filter (inc. clean out housing)
-- Cabin air filter (inc. clean out housing)
-- Lubricate sunroof rails, locks, hinges, and seals on body.
-- Drive belt and tensioner
-- HVAC system operation
-- Instruments, cruise control
-- Windows/sunroof operation
-- Transmission fluid
-- Driveshaft, inc. flex discs
-- Road test
-- Reset maintenance light
This is actually pretty essential to do, despite seeming like a lot of money for not much work. I have very rarely done one without catching a few things that the customer needs, and often it was a problem that would have gotten far worse had it been left to its own.

It is imperative that you loosen the caliper bleed screw BEFORE you push the piston back into the caliper. Failure to do so WILL damage the ABS hydraulics.

SOURCE: front and rear brake pads
most important is to deactivate SBC control unit with computer to start work, otherwise you can damage system, then to change pads for front is just 13mm spanner and for rear - T40 torx.
