Hi guys;

Any ideas on how to remove this front clip on the front brake calipers?



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?

I've read the 2 pinned threads ( http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=100884 and http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=120913) that talk about changing the rotors/pads but they don't have this type of front brake....

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.
