Front EBC Pads

Does anyone know if the newer front EBC pads for the 01 LT have the anti-rattle clips on them like the OEM pads? I have searched this and the EBC site - no joy. The e-mail I sent to one of the EBC vendors asking this same question has gone unanswered.

Baby needs some new shoes so I thought I would give them or another quality supplier a try.

Thanks

Lee, no they do not! EBC pads come with... nothing. Just the pads.

There's anti-rattle stuff for the fronts???

Mmm, wonder when those went away.

I put EBC pads on the front when I did the rear rotor transplant last summer. Never notice no anti-rattle stuff. No rattles either.


Maybe I'm not seeing what you're asking about - anyone got a pic?

I put the new EBC's on the front of my '99 last week. Not sure what the anti-rattle clip is, but they did have something on them that the pads I took off did not have. There were spring-like "clips" on the slots that the pins that hold them in the calipers go through. Not sure if this is what you're talking about, but the pads I took off had no such springs. There were no "clips" or anything else on the back of the pads.

That is what I was talking about. The OEM units have that spring like clip that keeps the pads from clanking around on the front.

Did the pads have a different part number? Where did you get them? The only reason I have not used them on the front is the missing "clips".

Thanks

The EBC pads do not come with the clips, which are BMW parts, but you can re-use the old clips and pins.

I thought the spring clips were welded on the metal part of the pad. I have a couple of front BMW pads at home, so I will check this out and see if it can be done.

Did I misread JGroves post about springs on the EBC pad where the pin goes through? My bike is an 01 and takes the pads for the 99 - 01.

I may be getting today in the mail the BMW pads I bought from another member for my 05. I'll see what comes with the BMW set. Do your calipers say Brembo or BMW on them? The main difference is that with the BMW calipers you can remove the pads without removing the calipers from their mounts.

That depends on which of the EBC pads you ordered. The original pads are FA246HH which are being replaced by the FA407HH with the clip assembly fitted to the backplate.

Mine are Brembo - 99 - 01. PITA to replace pads. 65,000 miles and looking for 5th set of front pads. Yep, use them a lot. Have changed rear pads 3 times - once just to get rid of horrible squeal. Current rear pads still look good.

I just received my BMW pads for the 05 and they do not come with the anti-rattling springs either.

I have noticed that I went through brake pads much quicker with my 99 than with my 03 and my 05.

My new pads definitely had the springs. I'll confirm the EBC part number tonight. Unless I goofed, I meant to order for the '99-'01 model.

*update* New pads were of the 407HH variety.

Hmm. My brakes are Brembo and I changed the pads without removing the calipers from their mounts.

Wait. No I didn't. I had to unfasten them from their mounts to squeeze the pistons back into the caliper to make room for the new pads. But I didn't have to pull them off the rotor.

Here's the scoop:

From the bottom of page 31 of the 2007 EBC parts catalog

Thanks.

Just ordered two sets - $73.31 Delivered to Augusta, GA.

Not too bad. And, they said my order would arrive Monday - which I somehow doubt will happen.
