Question about 1994 Saab 900
Your car has disc brakes so you need to release the brake pads not shoes (they are for drum brakes). That should help when you buy a new set.
Loosen the split pins which hold the pads in the caliper. You should then be able to push the pads out. It sounds like the pads are worn down so much that the caliper pistons are at their full reach.
Once you have slid them out, you need a piston retractor tool to push the pistons back in the caliper in order to be able to fit the new pads.
SLide the pads in, use copper grease on the back surface to stop them squeaking. Once done, pump the brake pedal to set the pads and the job is finished.
