Re: clips on oem brake pads, not on Repco MMs for Girling dual piston Calipers

Peter Schulz sez:

> 1.   What are these clips on the pads for???

To retract the outboard pads away from the rotor, as the carrier moves back.

> 2.   Do I need to install replacement clips onto the new Repco MMs?

Nope, works fine without them.

> 3.   One of each pair Repco MMs came with wires for wear sensors, evidently my car does not have a matching connector for this feature.  Do any fellow Coupe Q or 90 owners have cars with the pad wear sensors?? 

Nope -- not a feature on these cars.

> I installed these pads inboard, pulled through the wire, and tie-wrapped it to the brakelines.  
> 4. Should I just have clipped the wear sensor wires off???

I just clipped them off, but probably doesn't make much difference either way...
