Hi peeps, i've just put a new set of rear pads on complete with a new fitting kit, i lost a brake pad (fell out) as i was doing approx 70mph (made one hell of bang ), i'm now a bit paranoid of it happening again,

My question is does the little clip (figure of 8 thingy) definately go through the hole in the retaining bar that's on the inside (i.e. the furthest hole away from the wheel?, it does show it that way in Wellys Faq but i am sure i did it that way last time and the pad still fell out? Unsure

Can someone confirm if this is correct?

Yep that's deffo right. Mine fell out once but the L clip, and subsequently the pads, stayed in place.

I can only think your pad springs weren't in right previously? Smile

Have you put both legs of the clip through the hole? that's what it looks like in that picture, and that's not right. ??

I've always put one of the legs through the hole and one around the outside as it limits the travel of the bar further!

I don't suppose it makes much difference either way. All the ones I've seen have been like the picture above though.

A good fix for the problem is to do as the 205 rally boys often do and drill an extra hole in the pad carrier and lockwire the bar in place - no way that it's going to fall out then.
