Front Brake Caliper Guide(Slide) Pins

Post by surades » Sun Sep 06, 2020 7:57 pm

Hi, Looking for some help on the Nissan Pulsar 1.2 Dig-T Tekna.
Anyone changed the Pads and Discs? The callipers guide pins top and bottom are different, one pin has a rubber bush. Does it go top or bottom please and why does it matter?

Cheers

I've changed the pads a long time a go by only removing the bottom pins, didn't see any rubber bushing on those pins, so probably the one with rubber is installed on the top. afaik, the rubber is an anti rattle device.

:) Thank you that makes me feel better I put them in the top but wanted reassurance as I mixed them up TWICE!!
