Vti brake pad clips


Question

Before I lose the plot (more) would somebody have a pic of the front caliper on a vti where I can get Good look at how the brake pad retaining clips look when they're fitted?

 

I just went to install the new ones I got from the motor factors, and they're the same size as the ones I got from euro car parts, just these ones have also got the clips that span between the main ones (and these seem like they'll be too short to reach). 

 

I just want to check in not being a total divvy.

Doesn't matter, just looked at the workshop manual, and the vti ones are a totally different shape.

Jesus mate! you'd be better off just getting the kit from Honda, might cost a little bit more but you know they will fit straight out of the box.

I know, problem is I looked on lings at the start to get the part number and they don't even list them as a separate part, only with pads which of course are now showing un-flipping-available. 

Going to have one more try with the motor factors, then probably get in touch with Tegiwa or Japserviceparts to see if they can help.

Well, motor factors said that all of the 7 catalogues for all the big manufacturers have the same part :Facepalm1:

 

Went to the local Honda dealer, and they confirmed that the clips only come with the pads, so a set of pads was ordered - it's not like I'm not going to need another set of pads ever :lol:

 

Have to be sent from Belgium though, so will be end of the week.

TBF the Standard Honda pads are decent mate. Thats good to know we can still get bthem from Honda as I need to order up some new retainers for DD, so will just get the pads at same time. Do you know if the pads come with the shims as i cant remember?

You should be able to get the retainers for DD - in fact I've got a set for the fronts still from euro car parts if you need them? They don't have the spreader ones though, just the ones that seat in the calipers. 

I've just checked, and my pads haven't got the shims in.

Shims should come with the pads according to this... shrug.gif1

 

Just double checked and they're not in the box.
