    code 5 pads

    So, I just noticed that I bought new code 5 pads off amazon and I got the 2011+ pads, and I'm fairly certain that my calipers predate that. Is there any good way to tell the difference by looking at the caliper? Is there anyway that I can use these pads or should I start hunting for a receipt?

    Pre-2011 codes have "bottom loaded" pads where as the newer ones are inserted into the top of the caliper. I had the opposite problem, everyone locall had the old style with the extra tab on the bottom of the pads, nobody even knew there was a 2011+ version until I had them order me some.
