I tried to e-mail most of the sites of spare parts from the links section but i did not get any answer from anybody ?
Any chance anybody can help me ?
It is not too easy to get parts in France as there is not many 96s around and the french saab garages/clubs only care about turbos !!
Thank a lot
PS: another question: the back brakes of my saab look like the Morris ' brakes ( mini Cooper) . Are-they the same ?

The brakes shoes look very similar to Mini, but are bigger. Mini wheel cylinders are interchangeable apparently. See the 'Wheel Brake Cylinder' thread for more discussion on this.
|21/11/2004 10:30:41||david||I had a look at some old brake catalogues recently and gleaned the following information:
95/96 V4 1967-78 Mintex front pads LDB335, rear shoes MLR8 (linings as separate parts: H1/7/2(4) - I assume the (4) means that you need four of them!). I have also been told, by another entusiast, that the Vauxhall Wyvern shoes fit as well (don't suppose there are many of them in France!).
Try eBay - sets of shoes and pads come up for sale on there occasionally. Good hunting.
