    Rear Brake Anti-Rattle Clip???

    99 R1100RT

    Anyone know what the little spring clip (don't know what else to call it) is that falls out when you remove the rear brake pads? I assume it is some type of anti-rattle spring/clip. Real thin metal piece about an inch long and 3/4 inch wide. I can not find it on the parts microfiche. One of the tabs is broken off from the main body so I need to find out if it is even necessary to put back in or not. Thanks

    GS.....can you tell me which side of the clip faces up towards the top of the brake caliper? I can't find a decent diagram and it just fell out when I took it apart. Thanks...

    The fore and aft ends face downwards, the center goes up.

    If you look at the image the 2 brake pad edges would go under the clip as it is sitting

    Thanks GS...now my next question. I am assuming the clip is meant to be centered (front to back centered) within the caliper body. Also, I am assuming that the two tangs that stick up are meant to "snap in" somewhere to hold the clip in place? If so then I can't seem to figure out how it clips in, because the recessed area at the center of the caliper is not wide enough for the spring clips to lock in. Seems like I either need to put it on one side or the other, and neither way seems to fit very well in my opinion. I don't want to just shove this thing in there. Any advice on this?

    It goes in closest to the back retaining pin.
