Re: Brakes ATE Front Caliper

See you got your pictures sorted.

See the picture below for how the spring goes.

Put the ends of the spring in the holes in the caliper, a small smear of grease on the ends of the spring stops it seizing in the hole for the future.

With the ends of the spring in the holes lever the spring into position with a pair of pliers or a screwdriver, when in position tap the part of the spring where it goes into the caliper to make sure it's fully home in the hole.
