You never actually asked a question, but I think these diagrams have the information you're looking for.I pulled the caliper bracket off the driver’s side front wheel and noticed that the disk pads were tightly stuck to the bracket.
As I look at it, it looks like maybe the pads aren’t seated in the clips properly. I had a friend do it for me and am not sure he did it correctly.
You can see the tab on the retaining clip is inserted through the loop of the wear indicator.
Also, the caliper slide pin with the rubber boot is on the bottom - from what I’ve read, it seems like they are usually on the top. I do have a service guide, though, and it does show the rubber boot pin going on the bottom.
I’ve attached a couple of images showing the left front caliper and the brake pads and clips which were put on it.
Thanks very much!
