    Default Brake Spring

    Hi just replaced the rear pads on my 1.9cdti. Slight problem in that one of the Caliper Springs broke when trying to get it off. Does anyone know if it will be ok to drive the car until I get a replacement one to put on? thanks

    The spring secures the caliper. I forgot to fit mine and I noticed a slight wobble in the caliper. I sure it will be fine to drive but please please check out yourself. I did notice that Halfords sell the springs in the brake pad bit of the shop. Hopefully they are a common fit.
