So here's the deal. Bought my car 2 years ago and finally had to do the breaks, replaced the front pad and rotors fine but they came with the small retainer clips in the package,(didn't even second guess throwing them out)...I know what they are but can't figure out where they go,only reason I have this prob is I bought a new drivers caliper and just bypassed them...does any one have a diagram of the caliper complete so I can end this horrific sqeal that has ruined my driving experience. Thanks for any info

those retainer clips... are the ones on the sides of the pads? see part #8

they help the pad stay in place without excess vibration because of the free floating pad system we have. snap them into the caliper bracket, slip the pads on, swing the calipers down (press pots in first if needed). they are also your low pad indicators. a think a whole set is roughly $40 to replace (F&R).
