96 Eldorado ETC -- left rear brake pads placment and positioing?

Recommended Posts

Have an issue that I'm hoping someone can help me with. I was replacing the studs and when pulling the brake calliber, the pads fell out. So, I don't know how they go back on. One has a clip, while the other does not. What I need to know then is if the one with the clip goes on the inside or the outside. Help! :)

You might want to post a pic of clip and where it is on the pad. (the one that is still on) I don't think there are any clips that stay on the pads. I am wondering if you have the clips on the top and bottom stuck to one of your pads.

Whatever you do do NOT push the piston on the caliper back in. There is a $5.00 tool that connects to a rachet, and it has pins that fit nto the piston top. The piston gets spun back in, and not jt pushed in with a C clamp. The tool is a 'cube'
