Re: Extra parts which came with scenic front pads

They sound like anti-rattle shims. When my garage changed my brakes they had to wait for these shims to be delivered, but said if I wanted to use the car it would be safe to drive without them fitted...they just stop the pads from making a noise by rattling in the caliper when they are at 'rest' without the brakes applied.
Currently in Renoir White's garage:
Renault Trafic 1.7 Petrol Vauxhall Astra 1.4i & in bits Triumph Bonneville T140E & H-D XLH1200
