HOW DOES THE SPRING HOLD THE INBOARD BRAKE SHOE ON TO THE PISTON?

2004 Mazda 3

Hi, this question is about the floating caliper. And how is it assembled? I don't understand the concept of the spring. It is supposed to hold the inboard brake shoe to the piston but I can't seem to visualize how it works.

Thanks for your time

Keeps the pads from moving. The moving is what gives you brake squeel.

The question I had was more how was the spring was connecting the brake pad to the cylinder

It is factory attached to the pad and snaps into the caliper piston
