This should be a 5 minute job but for some reason the spring that holds the front pads in place is some how out of place and not letting the pads slide in. I mess around for and hour last night trying to aline it with a small screwdriver , looks like I'll have to remove the caliper to see what is going on.

Did the springy thing pop out of the channel or get flipped?

Not sure what happened. I may have moved it somehow when I moved the pucks back.
