I apologize if this has already been discussed!, I tried searching for an answer. What is this hook/clip for? Haven't taken the old ones out yet, and am hoping the answer will become appare. Thanks.

If I am seeing what you are asking about, that projection is the brake pad wear indicator. When the pad wears thin enough, the projection touches the rotor making an annoying screeching/grinding noise.

when installing the rear pads Take note of which pad goes on the inside and outside. It matters. Otherwise you will install incorrectly and will have them wear out unevenly.
Let us know if you need the installation manual.

The wear indicator should go high on the inside. I used Acebono 1114A pads.
