Anti rattle clips on brake caliper.

I just replaced the rear brake calipers on my 16 valve because the old brake cylinders were seized. I broke the anti rattle clips that hold down the brake pads, not the retainer pins. Are these absolutely necessary to reinstall? I drove the car for a little bit and didnt hear any brake squealing from the rear. Please advise.

Also, the rebuilt calipers were a litle different than those I removed. The anti rattle clips from the original caliper was bigger than the gap on the rebuilt caliper. The rebuilt caliper was bought from as un unloaded caliper.

How do you remove the rear discs? Do you have to really pound the **** out of them to make them release from the hub? Joe

If you are referring to the cross spring in the rear caliper that the retaining pins are held in place and keep the pads from rattling then ,YES. I think it keeps the pad retaining pins from falling out.
The rear brake disc is secured to the rear hub with an allen screw.

the pins are hammered in. You need a punch to remove them. I alreaddy bought the punch. The spring does not hold the pins , the pns hold the rattle clip-aka- spring.
