2004 R1150RT Rear Brake Caliper Question


Recommended Posts


Hey Folks,


I'm overhauling a 2004 1150RT that I just bought that sat for years and years in a garage.   Replacing the brake lines with Spieglers and bleeding so I can see if I'll need to do a servo-ectomy or not.   I'm a bit confused on the rear caliper.   The BMW Parts Fiche shows Part# 34 21 2 330 309 (picture attached) for the little spring clip.   The fiche shows TWO different clips, but the BMW Official Manual only shows one.   I ordered that part number and received both clips.   I'm stumped as to what the second clip is for or if I need it (and if so.... where does it go lol).


Thanks for your guidance!

Easy way is just to replace what you have in the caliper now with new parts that match.


See picture for location & NOTE, the little arrow direction on the anti-rattle clip.
