There is a butterfly clip on the pad not sure if thats supposed to go a certain way

Do you know volvos??
Volvo Mechanic: Jerry, Master Mechanic replied 3 years ago
Yes and there is a clip and it does hold the caliper(s) from moving around and causing a rattle over rough roads. They do move a slight bit when the pedal is not applied, (floating calipers)
