The 2 bolts are replacement bolts for where the caliper fixes to the braket, as for the clips they are for there the brake pads slide in the caliper. If u look at the pads u will see to extra bits of metal sticking out at each end, now look at the caliper and find the 2 ends im speaking about and u will see the 2 clips, they just pop out and and just there it's easyer for the pads to slide and not rust to the caliper thus impairing brake performance.
