Re: 2004 Megane (II) DCi (80) front disc and pad questions.

The spring clips (in your link) sit in the pad carrier which is part of the caliper carrier on that set up, they are normally ok and just require a clean up.
When you remove them clean away any rust from the carrier where the clips sit and put a smear of copper grease on before refitting the clips, add a dab of copper grease to the tangs of the pads that sit in the clips.

You sometimes get a new set of the spring clips supplied with the new pads, but that may just be with premium quality pads.


Please take the time to enter your vehicle details in the "What's current in your garage?" box.
