    Default Wanted, mid eighties Toyota have van brake caliper clip.

    I need one of these, so my pad dosent end up on the road.
    Warrant time, so rebuilt front brakes on the Hudson, and figured since the left side clip was missing, I'd be ok, but the new pad, which I didn't need to replace, but did, won't stay put.
    I can probably bend one up, but don't want to trust that.
    Any spring makers in Chch?

    Here's a pic of the right side one.

    Pic won't load!

    Fifty views, but no cigar.
    I had one made, but that disappeared when I road tested it, Saturday arvo.
    This clip is kicking my ass.

    I've sent my only anti rattle spring to Kennedy at Dawson springs in Christchurch, to have a copy or two made.
    It won't be cheap, but you Gotter do what you Gotter do.

    I got four springs/clips made at a cost of $170.
    At first I was pissed, because they weren't perfect copies, and I couldn't get any to fit.
    Walked away five times, and kept coming back to it.
    Finally repurposed a Model A valve spring removal tool, and managed to pop a spring in.
    After testing, this thing is stronger than the original, so I'm done.
    Overall, I'm a happy camper.
