I believe you mean the clips that keep the brake pads from rattling.
The smaller one of the two, fits into the caliper where the front of the pads slide into the caliper. It goes between the pads and caliper, and has a slot to where the disc fits. It kinda fits into a recessed rectangle hole. (Opposite the brake pad pin.)
The longer clip has two small tabs on it's back, near the center, that clips towards the top center of the caliper, and it puts pressure downward on the pads. One end rests on the top of the pads, as the other ends up resting on the "pin" that holds the pads in place.
Look close, and you should see marks where they were, as they can only go on one correct way.
Good luck!

Replacing break pads on 2000 tarus


Remove & Replace the Brake Pads
  • Loosen lug nuts from the front wheels with the ratchet and socket, but do not remove them.
  • Raise the front of the vehicle using the floor jack and secure it with jack stands.
  • Remove the lug nuts from the wheels and pull the wheels from the vehicle.
  • Look on the rear of the brake caliper and locate the caliper bolts, one upper and one lower.
  • Loosen and remove the upper and lower caliper bolts using the ratchet and socket.
  • Pull the caliper from the brake assembly, exposing the brake pads, and hang the caliper from a suspension component, using the bungee strap. Do not allow the caliper to hang by its hose, as this may cause damage.
  • Grasp the inner and outer brake pads and pull them from the brake assembly. Take note of how they were positioned, as the new brake pads must be placed in the same fashion.
  • Place the new brake pads on the brake assembly in the same position the old ones were.
  • Position the c-clamp over the caliper so the screw portion is contacting the the caliper's piston--the metal cylindrical object inside the caliper--and the fixed portion of the clamp is contacting the rear of the caliper.
  • Tighten the c-clamp until the caliper's piston is fully pressed into the calipers body. The top of the piston is even with the caliper body when fully pressed in.
  • Loosen the c-clamp and remove it from the caliper.
  • Place the caliper over the new brake pads and hand-tighten the upper and lower caliper bolts.
  • Tighten the upper and lower caliper bolts to 26-foot pounds, using the torque wrench and a socket.
  • Repeat Steps 4 through 13 for the brake pads on the other side of the vehicle.
  • Place the wheels back on the vehicle and hand-tighten the lug nuts.
  • Remove the jack stands from under the vehicle and gently lower it to the ground.
  • Tighten the lug nuts to 100-foot pounds using the torque wrench and a socket.
  • Press and release the brake pedal repeatedly until it feels firm.

Removal & Installation


CAUTION Dust and dirt accumulating on brake parts during normal use may contain asbestos fibers from production or aftermarket brake linings. Breathing excessive concentrations of asbestos fibers can cause serious bodily harm. Exercise care when servicing brake parts. Do not sand or grind brake lining unless equipment used is designed to contain the dust residue. Do not clean brake parts with compressed air or by dry brushing. Cleaning should be done by dampening the brake components with a fine mist of water, then wiping the brake components clean with a dampened cloth. Dispose of cloth and all residue containing asbestos fibers in an impermeable container with the appropriate label. Follow practices prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the handling, processing, and disposing of dust or debris that may contain asbestos fibers.
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle. Remove the front wheels.
  3. Remove some brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir.
  4. Disconnect and plug the brake fluid line from the caliper.
  5. Remove the brake caliper mounting bolt and guide bolt and remove the caliper from the mount. The brackets can be removed for additional work space.
  6. Remove the brake pads and clips from the caliper. Inspect the brake pads for wear; replace them, if necessary.

  4. Connect the fluid line to the caliper using new washers. Torque the brake line banjo fitting to 26 ft. lbs. (35 Nm).
    WARNING Be sure the hook end of the flexible brake line is positioned in the anti-rotation cavity.
  5. Refill the master cylinder reservoir and bleed the brake system.
  6. Install the front wheels and lower the vehicle.

Good night please how can I change brake from my car saturn 1997 fron will



REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Front Disc Brakes
See Figures 1 through 8
Always replace the brake pads in sets, meaning BOTH front wheels.
  1. Raise the front of the vehicle and support it safely using jackstands, then remove the front wheels.
  2. Remove the lower caliper lock pin.

The Saturn brake pad replacement procedure states that after removing the lower caliper pin, you can simply pivot the caliper to a vertical position in order to remove the brake pads. This procedure, when attempted on a 1992 SC with ABS, looked as if it would place excessive stress on the brake line. No changes in steering position seemed to alleviate this tension, so a full pivot for pad removal was not attempted. Another option is to remove the upper caliper pin, but not the lower pin, and simply pivot the caliper down for possible access. However, to prevent damage to the brake line you may wish to remove both guide pins and support the caliper assembly from the strut using a coat hanger or length of wire.
  1. Pivot the caliper up or down on either guide pin or remove both guide pins and support the caliper from the strut using a coat hanger or length of wire.
  2. Remove the 2 brake pads and the pad clips from the caliper support Discard the old pad clips.
  3. Check the caliper pins, pin boots and the piston boot for deterioration or damage.

To install:
  1. Either by hand or using a C-clamp, bottom the piston all the way into the caliper bore.
  2. Carefully lift the inner edge of the piston boot by hand to release any trapped air.
  3. Install new pad clips into the caliper support.
  4. Install the inner and outer brake pads into the support. If installed, remove the temporary support wire from the caliper.
  5. Pivot or position the caliper body on the upper guide pin into position. Compress the boots by hand as the caliper is positioned onto the support.
  6. Lubricate the smooth ends of the lock and guide pins with silicone grease, then install the pin and tighten to 27 ft. lbs. (36 Nm). Do not get grease on the pin threads.
  7. Repeat the procedure for the opposite side brake pads.

  4. Raise the vehicle. Refer to Vehicle Lifting.
  5. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.

  1. Compress the front brake caliper piston.
6.1. Install a large C-clamp over the top of the brake caliper housing and against the back of the outboard brake pad. 6.2. Slowly tighten the C-clamp until the piston pushes into the brake caliper enough to slide the brake caliper off the rotor. 6.3. Remove the C-clamp from the brake caliper.
  1. Remove the lower mounting bolt from the slide pin.
  2. Rotate the brake caliper upward until it stops.
  3. Remove the outboard brake pad.
