Front caliper rebuild

Post by Smartin »



I'm rebuilding the front brake calipers on my '86 Interstate and can't seem to find a spot for this.




Can anyone help me remember the placement of this piece.

That's a spring retainer that keeps the brake pads from vibrating, Item #17 in the parts figure. I rebuilt my front calipers about 2 months ago and new retainers came with the OEM Honda brake pads when I ordered them from Partzilla.com as kits.

Thanks for your help ksigurdsen. It appears I didn't slide far enough to the right when I was looking at the fiche.
