Too late now but in the future if you push out the retaining pin with a drift pin and then replace one pad at a time the clip will be held in place so you don’t have to mess with it. Once it falls completely out it can be tricky getting it back in place with the caliper mounted.

You are talking about the pad spring?

The clip is a real PITA to get in correctly, but can be done, I just did it myself on my 13 XC. It only goes in one way, try again, you can do it, just go easy with it.
