Left over parts

Post by Normk » Wed Sep 18, 2019 12:09 pm



When I put my front calipers and brakes back together. I had 2 parts left over in the pan where I place everything. I don't remember removing these. But I think I can see them in the parts diagram. But have no idea where they go. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Anti rattle clips that go with brake pads. Each clip or "pad" goes across the rotor at the end of the pad, they clip on the caliper. The deep notch is to clear the rotor.

Where did you think you saw them in a diagram?

I saw the in the online parts list at one of the OEM sellers but couldn't tell by the picture where they went. Also couldn't find them in my aftermarket manuals. Have yet to get my hands on a shop manual. Thanks for the info.

If they go on, they'll clip on the caliper on one end of the pad space, crosswise to the rotor so they bridge the inner and outer side, on the compression side (upper towards front I think).

I said "IF" as I just vaguely recall them. I no longer have my 1200, so it has been a good spell since I've visited the front pads.

Thanks for the reply. I will pull off the capilers and put them back where they belong.
