Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Montero
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.
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.

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.

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.
