Mitsubishi Montero broken rear ''brake pad clips''

Mitsubishi Montero rear ''brake pad clips'' are broken after 1 week of use. New but not original pads. How important is the clip? Any remedy or solution? Is it safe to run without the brake clip? Thanks.

    Mitsubishi Montero: Rear wheel brake pads. The clips are part of the brake pads and they're easily break. Poor Mitsubishi brake design? Any "recall" history on this?

    Installed the new brake pads twice. The first set, the clips fell off. Bought another set, it broke again. grrrr!

    How safe it is to run the truck without the brake pad clips?

Dear Customer ,

Company had design that retaining clips for high performance at high speed so dont do that cause if you will remove its will look like comfartable but its may be risky.

so,do with care.

SOURCE: Mitsubishi Montereo - Rear Brake pads

you must spread the pads out....do this with a wedge-shaped tool and use lever action to push the caliper pistons back to the fully-retracted positions in the cylinders. The pistons are currently in the position where the last pads had allowed them to extend to. It is good practice to (excercise) the pistons at pad change time by moving the pistons back and forth slowly to remove any oxidation at the cylinder walls, but never allow pistons to fully extend...prevent this by using a piece of wood to act as the thickness of one rotor and 2 pads. You extend the pistons by using the car's brake pedal, then retract them with the wedge.

SOURCE: rear brakes pistons not retracting

I have resolved the problem by talking to my local car spares shop, they informed me that the rear pistons screw in as this is where the ABS system is. I purchased a specialist tool for £7 for the job but ended up using mole grips to turn the piston.
The brakes are now fitted and working perfectly.

SOURCE: how to change rear brake shoe pads of 2005 mitsubishi lancer

Hello, this do it yourself project is very manageable if it is brake pads that you are replacing on your car; if they are disc shoes it may be a little bit harder. In essence a brake job can be done straight out of a auto manual for your car and is not to diffucult as long as you follow good safety procedures while jacking up your vehicle and removing your wheels. First, I would park your car and setting your parking break will make your rear brakes impossible to get off so do not set it. I would however keep this in mind and be very careful working on your car then. I would chaulk your front wheel with a chaulk block or a brick. I would loosen your lug nuts just to break the intial torque I would then jack up the rear of your vehicle and set jack stands under your car in the proper locations. Then systematically, remover your wheel and then the two bolts holding your caliper to the spindle. Carefully, remove the caliper and do not let it hang becuase you will bend your brake line. Remove old shoes, then compress the caliper with a caliper compression tool from your local auto parts store or a c-clamp and a small block of wood. Inspect the rotor for deep gouges, a blue tint, or if you know you have gotten them really hot before I would replace the rotor. Next, install the new brake pads, put rotor back onto spindle and insert bolts back into caliper housing. Repeat for the next side and put the wheel back on and remember to torque your lug nuts to the proper specification. I hope this fixes your problem for you!

What clips do you need for the rear brakes


In my personal experience doing hundreds of brake jobs, if there are clips that need replacing they can usually be found by 1.buying the higher end brake pad replacements (usually come with all optional replacement parts) 2. Ask at the auto parts store if they carry a brake harware kit for that particular car and either front or back. 3. Call the dealership parts counter and ask.

Need help in replacing front and rear brakes on a 2003 mitsubishi montero full size


Hi there,

The pads are easy to change. You do not need any special tools. If there are no grooves in the rotors I would just put on new pads. Don't get cheap pads or they will squeek. I would strongly suggest that you flush out the old brake fluid. You will be amazed at how brown and gunky the old fluid is. Flushing the fluid regularly will help make your calipers and master cylinder last a long time. I like to use Valvoline Synpower brake fluid, it is a couple bucks more but it is DOT 4.

One last tip. When compressing the brake caliper piston you do not want to push the fluid back up to the system, because you might get some crud into the ABS module. Therefore, when compressing the piston, loosen the bleed screw to let the fluid flow out of the bleed screw.

This is how to get it done:
  • Remove the old fluid from the master cylinder resevior with a turkey baster. Top up master cylinder with fluid.
  • Remove the right rear wheel and bleed/flush the brakes with the old pads on. Top up master cylinder with fluid(important). Remove the caliper, open the bleed screw and compress the piston, close the bleed screw.
  • Install new pad and caliper
  • Bleed again. Top up master cylinder with fluid.
  • Repeat on remaining 4 wheels RR, LR, RF, LF.
Glad to be of help!!!

Right side rear brake drags


Remove all rust from pad and caliper sliding surfaces,eg metal to metal,not the pins,they get synthetic brake lube. Apply anti-seize to all sliding surfaces. Make sure you can screw in the rear caliper piston,if applicable, and manually ratchet up the parking brake,after caliper and pads are on. Bleed/Flush all 4 Wheels. Make sure you can slide the pads back and forth,before lubing end tabs. You may need to file a little off the ends or just remove the paint. Make sure parking brake cables are really releasing.

Rear brake pads rattle


There are spring clips which keep the pads tight in the caliper. These spring clips are missing, or are broken, or have lost their tension, etc.
