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

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...
