    Are These Brake Pads Right?

    Hi Guys,

    the outer break pad on my passenger side wheel has been clattering for ages, and its down to the little metal clips coming loose.

    So i went to buy some new pads from my local motor factors, and these were the only the ones they had, and they were adamant that there were no other types for my car (99' SXi 1.6 16V ABS)

    Now, they look the same shape, but the metal clip things dont look the same. The ones currently on my car have the clps bent back.

    |So, my question is, are these right? or not?!!



    Any help is welcomed and appreciated

    Andy
