    Default Help required regarding rear pads

    Hi guys looking for some advice, Rear pads needed replaced so went to the dealers to get a set. The parts guy asked what car they were for, I told him a vectra and away he went and came back with the pads.

    The problem I have is that now that I have taken the old pads off the new ones look different, well the inside one (i.e the one on the piston side of the caliper) I have taken a picture of both the old one had no spring clips on the back but spring on the edge. I just need to know if I can use the pads I've been given or if they are the wrong ones.

    Many thanks for any replies.

    Don't worry. The design of them changed and the ant-rattle spring design was changed somewhat - as you can see.

    All you have to do is make sure that those bits slide over/behind the end of the piston - if you see what I mean - so that the pad is held in place.

    If you want to post up the part number of what you were given, I can double check that they are definitely the right ones.
