Need to fit new shoes/pads and discs to rear of Cali'.

Have recently changed handbrake shoes on my Vectra and dispaired with the fitting of the retaining clip to the springs which retain the shoe against the backplate. Ended up taking the whole hub off by removing the 4 bolts. Took hours.
Is there a tool for refitting those poxy little clips?. Cant imagine Vaux' taking hubs off to do such a simple job.
Help. Cheers
Tom
