Hey, guys:

I'm in the process of replacing the calipers on my TR7 and due to lamentable yet predictable idiocy on my part, I misplaced one of the old calipers which, while not only eliminating any core value I might have, also misplaced the little spring clip that holds the pads in the caliper while installing and, presumably, minimizing rattling of the pads.

The ones I ordered from V.B. didn't seem quite right, but it was their only choice, and they didn't come close. Too cheap to return, but I was disappointed.

I'm confident the pads will not fall out once in place on the car, but has anyone had experience with leaving these out? Alternatively, does anyone know where I can get some of these? I'd just as soon not have to re-do the job.

Thanks a lot.Tom Los

Tom, I ordered a set from BPNW a while back, in a Lucas box, and they

worked perfectly.
