Just changed rear pads, need a little help?

As above, just changed the rear pads on my 172 cup. It was much easier than expecting. Mostly thanks to this guide...

but i have a problem. If you look at the guide there are 2 wire "clips" one on the back of each rear pad (so the car has a total of 4). My car didn't have these, i am guessing they hold the pads in place somehow but i aint sure. Do i really need them and if so where can i get them from?

Yes you need them, otherwise your pads will fall out other wise!

Halfords sell the fitting kit for it

Thanks, good to know. I have had the car for 5 months and they have never had them on!!! nice and safe.

They were probably stuck in by brake dust and the clip had fallen out a while back! Same setup (ish) as the valver, was forever losing pads, then my 106 Gti had the same setup but 14" wheels so the pad couldn't fall out :p

went to reno, they wanted £27 and delivery wouldn't be for a few days. So went to parkers in leicester. £10 and its in today. So pretty happy with that. I only need the 4 large clips anyway as i am not changing the other parts so £10 suits me better. If i was changing everything i would prob use reno.

As for the clips falling out, they have never been there since i have owned the car, so i can't comment on them falling out or not being fitted correctly.
