2007 Volvo brakes

I know we had a post regarding Volvo's recently. Well my wife's 2007 S40 needed pads, so I went to the parts house (eventually 3 times) for pads. Parts catalog requests "size of wheel" to determine which pads to give you. Be aware it is the size of the "rotor", not the "wheel". All the catalogs are wrong, so if you need to get brakes, be aware of the error. You can order any size wheel you want from 15 to 17" when you order your car. I guess they (or the computer) makes adjustments to the speedo, etc. So just because you have 16" wheels, you have 15" rotors and should buy them accordingly.
Hey, I love being the "learning" blockhead!!

hi chandler.
thank you for update. i have little doubt volvo owners will appreciate this.

here's my grain of salt though. before you tackle the job, make sure you can use human, not alien, tools on this project. last year i went into volvo forum, and in five minutes realized that i will never ever buy one. EVERYTHING is some odd sizes, design, and requires SPECIAL TOOLS, and those start at 300 a pop.
