The extra nib that must be aligned with the notch on the caliper piston prevents proper operation of the auto adjuster. The nib prevents the piston from rotating. The piston must be able to rotate to properly adjust. I pumped the brakes hundreds of times and the calipers never adjusted. I ground off the extra nib and re-installed. Within tens of brake pumps they adjusted just fine. The extra nib is NOT shown in the photos nor is there an extra nib shown on any of the other available pads

                      • Q:

                        I purchased these recently. However, unlike the picture, the pads I received had three metal studs along one side, not two as shown in the picture. The third stud is in the center were the thin metal backer shown in the picture is notched. It appears that the third stud prevents the caliper from making proper contact with the pad. Is it ok to grind off the middle stud?

                          A:

                          I'm happy to help, JG! The brake pads should not require you to physically alter the pad or backing plate to properly install them on your vehicle. These Wearever Gold Ceramic Rear Brake Pads (Part No. GNAD1326) are engineered to fit the 2008-2012 Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan, 2009-2013 Dodge Journey, 2012 Ram C/V and 2009-2012 Volkswagen Routan.

                          If you are still having difficulty installing the pads on your vehicle, a repair manual for your vehicle may provide additional replacement instructions. If these are the incorrect pads for your application, please return them to your local Advance Auto Parts store with your receipt. For additional installation assistance, you may want to consult with a certified mechanic.
