Picture is worth a thousand words.

Do you mean the thin springy item that sits between the piston and the pad itself (to stop them rattling) or the spring clip that secures the rod that holds the pads in the caliper (a bit like an old style Kirby hairgrip bit with one straight side and one bent side)

If itís the former then sometimes a new set of pads will come with a differently shaped shim, it will still do the job though.

Why do you need a new one?? They are not something that breaks or falls off!!

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
