I have a Boardman Comp Hybrid with disc brakes. My usual bike is a Specialised Secteur road bike and I rarely use the Boardman or disc brakes generally. So, I'm not too familiar with cleaning and maintenance.

Following a few Youtube videos I took the pads out to give them a clean but, when putting them back in, the metal clip doesn't seem to be pushing them back into their housing in the calliper properly.

I took the front wheel off to put the bike in the car and trying to get the disc to slot back into the calliper was very hard due to the pads being out of position.

The braking strength is not too bad but something is clearly not how it should be.

Any ideas??
