2003 996 Brake Pad Replacement update


Vehicle Information: Model: 996 C2; Year: 2003; Body Type: Cabriolet; Total Mileage: 14800;

Joel,I hope you see this email prior to spending time responding to the message that I sent last night. I did some more digging on your site and in my car and answered many of the questions.I now know what the anti-squeal shims and spurs look like from removing the rear pads. I figured out that the front anti-squeal shim is attached to aluminum fittings instead of spurs and you need to retrack the pistons to get them out.They look like they are OK so based on your numerous responses I am reusing them with my Pagid Blue pads.I also found one of your responses that suggests tie wrapping the brake sensor out of the way. That must mean there is no sensor for Pagids. I can probably reuse the sensor when I go back to stock Porsche pads.Still two questions - how do you like the Pagid Blue and where can I get a 996 manual. Thanks for your time.
