Re: espace front pads

On fitting brake pads very rarely I have had to dress-off the edges of the metal backing plate where there are burred edges left after pressing but apart from that all pads should be able to be inserted using finger and thumb. Any force of filing beyond that means that the caliper or pad carrier may require a clean up or the pads are the wrong ones.
