Extra Brake Part!

Postby kboaz2001 » Sat Aug 10, 2013 11:11 am



I just changed my front brake pads, and the pictured piece fell off. I looked on some parts breakdowns of the brake assembly, it is called a retaining clip, but the pictures are rather vague as to where it belongs. Can anyone tell me where it goes

It attaches to the caliper where the rotor enters/exits it.

Not sure if there are 2 on each caliper.

I concur with previous post. Remove the caliper the part fell from, remove both brake pads from said caliper. Fit that retainer in place (on the caliper) where the upper (imaging the caliper is bolted in place...)tabs of the b.pads come into contact with the caliper. If the retainer is already there, then the one that fell out most likely goes in the same place on the bottom.
Keep the rubber side down.
