I was about to start my first real DIY job - rear brake pads + rotors, this will be followed by changing the valve cover gasket. Here is the problem I have run into even before starting the job:
I was thinking of getting Akebono pads for the 328i (1997) that I have, however, the Advance auto Parts rep told me that I need to be sure whether the piston clip (I believe it is the three pronged clip on the outer side of the brakepad) has a "high-wide" or "low-wide" center clip as this could make a big difference.
WHat kind of brakepads should I be buying here? :dunno:
I don't want to open up the thing and then try to buy the pads as that would require me to wait for a few days before they can get the order in, ideally, I"d like to just have them hold it for me and I can go ahead and pick them up, and then start the job.
