Brake pad/caliper spring clip

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.

I've just regostered here as google isn;t being that much help.

I've recently replaced the pads all round on the GF's RX400h and need to source the springy-clip that holds the brake pads in place. When I did the swap I noticed that one clip (the near-side rear caliper) was deformed and out of shape. This made it difficult to fit one pad to that rotor and I am sure that it it affecting the pads release following braking.


I'm paranoid that this could cause an MOT| failure (due to uneven braking) and would like to source a replacement before submitting the car for the MOT test.

I'm struggling to find the part (number) that I need and have been unable to get hold of the service manual.


Thanks in advance for all your assistance

ok, from scouring the famaous auction site, I;ve found a compler kit (including pads and rotors) but I only need these clips in the cropped photo.


Please, can anyone supply the part numbers needed to order these clips? (or just the correct item name will help)
