Step 14: Install retaining spring clips

Picture of install retaining spring clips
Reinstall the retaining spring clips, to keep the retaining pins from falling out! :)

  • withdraw top pin temporarily
  • thread top pin through second clip (the "M" shaped one)
  • install first clip (vertical one) into pins
  • clip one side of the "M" through the hole in one brake pad
  • clip the other side of the "M" through the hole in the other brake pad

I don't see where it is specifically states that the S shaped spring is re-installed between the holes in the top and bottom pins. I believe this is what keeps the pins from coming out. I got a new brake hardware kit that had 4 small clips to replace this spring.
