Thumbs up renault grand espace rear pad rattle

hi, just a footnote to replacing rear pads on year 1999/2000 shape models with bembro calipers, some of these models had a terrible rattle or suspension like noise from the rear of the car, took me ages to pin it down to rear pad rattle!!
renault could not solve the problem locally[surprise surprise],fault is caused by no anti-rattle springs on pads!! new oem pads should now have 4 springs and split pins to go into top of pad,[check with ebc picture on pads number d885] this has completely cured the rattle!!
i informed local renault franchise garage who were unaware of problem or cure, their original pads had no clips listed on the parts list!! i guess oem suppliers had some feedback and found their own solution!!
Currently in johnno's garage:
