    Have I got these clips right?


    ASA reveals I need another one of those skinny wide clips towards the bottom, so I'll get onto GZP about ordering another clip set, but ASA also say's I need to use 2 of those large silver clips that I have in the middle. I have no idea how these clips go as I cant find a reference picture. Does anyone have a picture like this which shows the clip arrangement?
    Just so I know what the hell I'm doing and I don't keep on guessing.
    Thanks peeps.

    You have the pins in backwards. The long thin metal clip goes into the holes at the end of those pins and the center of that clip goes into the caliper. You can see the hole that it goes into in your picture. The shims for the brake pads. I believe you only run one of them per pad. Basically, you want them on the bottom of the pad (when caliper is mounted on the car). I hope that all makes sense. You do have the big metal clip right though

    ^What he said Turn those pins around and feed that small wire clip through the holes in the pins and put the hook into the caliper and you're looking good to me. You only need on of those large clips in the top center of the caliper but by skinny wide clip are you talking about that wire clip? lol sorry, seems both of our terminology is off a bit
