    Nuts and bolt restoration - Trouble with rear brake pads.

    So I went to see just how deep the rabbit hole goes and completely tore my dommie apart for a restoration.

    I'm currently rebuilding it, and I've changed the pads on the rear, but there is only a pin to secure them on one end, which means that the pads won't stay in the caliper!

    What am I missing?

    and possibly the spring clip where it's retained on the caliper body.

    You need to attach it to part 5 in the photo for the pads to stay in place

    Going above and beyond with the video!

    But wouldn't the pads still be able to hang loose that way? At least mine do when the caliper is installed. I'll grab a video of it tomorrow, maybe it's just me? (hopefully!)

    There's a lip the pads sit in on the mounting bracket circled in red, there should be a removable metal retainer on there as well part 6 in the photo

    I'm such a dumbass, it's missing! Can you tell that this is my first time doing an entire bike? Makes me wonder what else I might have missed....

    Should be somewhere around the workshop...hopefully!

    Where could I acquire it if I don't find it?

    Thanks a bunch!
