Hi guys;<p>Any ideas on how to remove this front clip on the front brake calipers? <p><IMG SRC="http://www3.sympatico.ca/apregent/photo/BrakeClip.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p><br>I've done quite a few brake jobs on other cars but I've never seen a clip like this, only the wire type. I'm guessing it needs to be removed to open up the caliper and change the pads?<p>I've read the 2 pinned threads ( <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=100884" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=100884</A> and <A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=120913" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=120913</A>) that talk about changing the rotors/pads but they don't have this type of front brake....<p> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

I just shove a screw driver underneath the bottom of the middle of the clip, in between the retainer and the spring clip. Should just pop off but hold your hand over it or a rag or something because they can fly off pretty hard.
