So you are getting it soon ...please feed back after fitted it as i just
found out my brake shoes still half way to go.
not sure what is different on 1.6 and 1.8 waja brake pad as not
familiar with 1.8....but one thing found out is if your s40 are 2001
above model than the front shoes can't use waja size ( only
1998-2000 are fit with waja for front & rear )

since your is phs2, only the rear shoe can use Waja one..front one
need sample to compare around...
I didn't said M tech got volvo brake pad...but i said can use they Waja
pad for our car...another brand you can try is Ferado perfomance
brake pad ( head is worth of value as high perfomance & reasonable
price ) , but not sure what they have...will try to call they dealer to find

brake pads - M tech G5 ( front ) for my 2000 V40..end up saw a brand
of "Today" that claim it is perfomance brake pads for S40 with 450c
so brought it and ask my outside regular workshop to fit. and surprise
to see the size of the "Today" brand brake pad are smaller that my
original ....but not choice still fitted it as my original is only left 5% pad.
used it for a week and notice my rotor shown the pad only contact
with 80% on it...so start worry the braking perfomance and decided it
out from my car with replaced with original pads and went back to ask
Enoes why the pad are smaller that original volvo ??? the answer is
this "Today" brake pad are only good for those early model of V/S40
from 1996 - 1998 that not even available any in Malaysia....and it is
same size as Waja.
So conclusion is malaysia V/S40 ( late 1998 - 2003) brake pad (front)
are different from Waja,
