The kit shown in the shop has 10 items

8 of the items are the spring clips that stop the pads rattling, 2 sides of car x 2 pads x 2 clips per pad, a total of 8 clips.

There are a further 2 different clips in the kit, one per side of the car. Where are these used.

Good question.
I have not seen them on my 2009, so it's possible it's an edition for an early / later model, but the parts diagrams I have seen don't show them.
I have seen similar on systems with pad wear indication, but they are normally rivetted to one pad. That's my guess :-)

Agreed looks like the pad warning clips that are usualy fixed to one of the brake pads per side of the car. I have never seen them supplied loose.

Martin will know, he runs the website and shop.

Sorry, I haven't done the brakes on mine, so not sure.

Kits like these typically fit a number of different vehicles so some parts are not needed in a specific installation.

The two "extra" springs look to me like anti-squeal or retaining springs that would fit on top of the pads and compress when the caliper is lowered on.

I have not seen a Jimny with these fitted, for anti-squeal there is usually a metal plate on the back of the outside pad.

The kit mentioned above is also sold to suit both the MX5/Miata NA and NB that is Mk1 and MK2, I have two of those cars and also sold to be used on various Suzuki Jeeps.

I went on the the Miata.net forum, the MX5 in the states.

Someone asked the question there and they were identified as wear warning clips. These are usually riveted to the pads by the manufactuer. Not so on the MX5/Miata. The recomendation is that the clip should be fitted on the inside brake pad.

In saying that they were not fitted on our 2016 Jimny that we have had from new. I recently changed the worn out front pads at 24,000 miles and it was the outer front pads that were virtualy down to the metal and the front inner pads still had 3mm of pad left.

Mystery solved but we were virtually there.
