I got some decent weather this weekend, and took it apart. The
anti-rattle spring pins were indeed frozen on that side, and the
outboard pad was hardly worn. I had previously checked for pad wear,
and the outboard pad tricked me. The inboard pad was completely gone,
and inside of rotor scored. Lesson learned, all replaced. It seems to
me that these pins are such a weak point in the design that they should
be a maintenance item in themselves...perhaps remove, clean, and
replace every 50K. Can they be re-used if they are in decent shape?
Thanks,

Andy

Yes on both counts. Sticking pins are so common I suspect they are a major
cause of brake pad wear. I have been lucky enough to be able to clean and
relube all the pins I've encountered so far, but replacements are usually
inexpensive enough it might be a fool's errand to reuse them.

My wife's car is a Toyota Prius hybrid, and the brakes are used so lightly
(normally relies on regenerative braking above 11 mph except on rough
surfaces or hard stops) that I expect to relube them at least once before
time for pad replacement. A Prius tech in the Yahoo Prius group recommends
relubing every 30K miles. 50K should be okay for Volvos, I'd guess.
