Brake pad wear indicator clip

Hi,

on the front brakes, there is a clip that clips the wear sensor to the brake line, looks like this:

http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/Site...61990/ES61990/

When replacing the front pads and sensor, I noticed that the clip is not a very good/tight fit on the brake line... very little force is required to pull it loose and the clip slides on the brake line freely...

Has anybody done anything in regards to this? Is it OK to zip tie the sensor to the brake line instead of using this clip?

Thanks.

Yeah, I buy the clip also when I do my brakes - it's only $1.50

Guess you could use the clip + a zip tie to keep it from sliding
