    So when I was disassembling my calipers and getting them ready for paint, I put the retainer clips in one of those "safe places"...now I have no idea where that is. :mellow: Are these dealer-only or would Autozone or O'Riley's or some place like that have them?

    buy a hardware kit for that particular car model make sure it the right one those retainers clips are used to force the pads outward away from the rotors which will help with wear of the pads and noise
