I've read at least two other posts about this. Looks like a fairly uncommon problem. Still...for what its worth.

I was driving at a regular pace and suddenly started hearing a very loud noise coming from the rear of the car. Looks like the retaining pin holding the rear brake pads up has lodged loose and had cut a groove on my wheel before falling completely off.

Does anyone know if we can buy the (pins + spring) separately?? As of now my only option is to buy a new set of rear brake pads just for the (pin+ spring) from the lotus dealer, even though I have an additional set of brake pads :(

Does someone have an extra set of those lying around from an earlier pad replacement?? If so do send me a message with a price.

I know its a small price to pay for owning such a niche car, but thought I might ask before biting the bullet.

Cheers,
-Ravi

Did they all just end up buying new (lotus) pads?
