Rear brake retaining clips Sign In

2015 Toyota Camry.
I bought Import Direct rear brakes from O'Reilly's. The package came with 8 clips which looked identical. I thought at first they just include 4 extra. It turns out there are very subtle differences (four have a tiny tab at the end, and four don't. There may also be a very slight difference in dimensions where the little "T" looking thing bends up.) I looked up brake hardware for my vehicle and they all have the little tab. The ones that were put on do not have the tab. Is this a big deal? The brakes are for Toyota Camry, Rav 4 and certain Lexus models. Is it possible that even though different models come with slightly different clips, they're essentially the same? Car brakes fine, no noise. Here's the link for what I bought. Zoom in on the pic and tell me what you think.

You need 4 of them. There must be 2 different styles for a different model that uses the same pads.

just went to O'Reilly's and had them pull a box down and yeah, the "T" looking part that's raised on the one with the tab is a tiny bit wider than the other one. Wondering if a couple mm will make a difference.
I went through the trash and found the clips that came off and it doesn't look exactly like either one of them.

Them maybe you have the wrong brakes.
