PostSubject: Rear brake pad clip.   Wed 18 Feb 2015, 12:39

Hi, I have just put a new wheel and tyre on my 2002 Swing. I thought I might as well put new rear pads on, while I was in there. Looking at information on line it says make sure the top clip is in place when you put the pads in. The problem is the bottom clip has fallen out and I can't work out which way round it goes. Does anyone have any advice or a picture of where it fits. Thanks Jeff

Jeff below is a link to the parts diagram of the front caliper, could you tell us what number the clip is you're talking about? Then we'll know exactly what clip you're referring to.

IIRC that lower clip (item #3) kinda snaps onto the brake caliper and pushes (puts tension on) the brake pads, while the upper clip just acts as a guide for the pads to slide. Once you get it in place it does seem kind of obvious where it belongs.

You have to push the pads against the clip tension to align the mount pin (#15) with the holes in the brake pad plates. I hope this make sense.

Here is a link for the rear caliper parts break down that may help you:

Thanks both for your replies. It is the clip no.3 on the rear caliper. As it just fell out I wasn't sure where it came from. I thought it might be from the pad holding pin end. So does it come from further up the caliper? .
