Re: Extra parts which came with scenic front pads

They sound like anti rattle shims to me. If they are with the new pads then they should be fitted. The pads are made slightly smaller to accommodate these shims.

If you don't fit them the pads will be to loose in the caliper and will not seat correctly. They will also move about and judder.

Brake grease was mentioned earlier. Do not use a copper based grease if the calipers are made from aluminium.
Currently in planmeca's garage:
Renault Laguna 1.8 16v x 2 and a lot of other things. could really do with a tidy up to be honest I'll do it tomorrow
