The biggest repair problem I have had with my car (99 S70GLT) is burned out brakes due to the pads sticking on the pins. Happened twice, once on the front left, once on the rear left. <p>Looking back, I wish I had known, or someone (like the Volvo dealer) had told me that I need to have the caliper pins/slides checked and, if needed, cleaned/lubed, or replaced. Maybe checked twice a year when I change the oil (I don't put on a lot of miles).<p>How much work is involved in checking the condition of the slides? Can they be seen without taking the wheels off? And how much work is it to put in a pin kit or clean/lube the slides?<p>Wish I had known to ask this years ago. Thanks.
