I was just installing my brembo rotors with Axxis pads, the passenger side went fine. Now i have the caliper off and the brake pads on the driver side wont snap in. They go into the snaps and fall back out, is there anyway to keep them in there?
If it's the fronts push the piston in with a c clamp if it's the rear twist it back in with a big screw driver, only reason pads wont go in is if they are either the wrong pad or being put in backwards or the piston is sticking out too far. Any by clips you mean the anti rattle clips correct?
They dont have to be tight in there, just put them on and drive around, if you hear a rattle, then you know you need new clips,but if you don't then you know you are fine, aftermarket brake pads usually arent the exact shape/size as O.E.M. pads so they won't fit perfect.
