    Hi,

    I have a 2003 2.0L Petrol Accord Tourer.

    As I changed the pads and discs on the front, I noticed previously there were no pad retaining clips. I'm sure there should be some clips of sorts.

    I would be grateful if someone could inform me the correct type of retainers required i.e. clips that are like a bent wire that attach on to the sides or pad retainers that sit on the top and bottom of the caliper bracket?

    thanks.

    don't think the 7th Generation Accords have them. There some spring at the centre top of the pads if I recall correctly. Do a search for DIY guides on brakes, you should see from the pictures.

    Ooops, memory failure there, there are clips on the front brakes, see this article
