Advice - Replace Rotors, Brake Pads 97 960

Post by [email protected] » Wed Feb 16, 2005 10:48 am

I'd like to replace my front rotors/pads and rear pads on my 97 960. I've done this work before on a Blazer, so think I should be fine. However, I've heard you MUST get genuine Volvo pads or they will squeak. Anyone aware of a nice online/paper guide to follow for this work? What kind of grease should I use on the pads? Is there anything special to know about for this ccar??

beacause you drive such a heavy Volvo i do sugest that you replace all the parts with factory parts to change the front rotors is very simple just remove the caliper bolts wich should be 12 or 13 mm then you need a a 10 mm allen key to remove the bracket then you have the safty pin to remove make sure you clean the hub around the studs then when puting everything back put grease on the hub and the pads you can use just regular white grease
