"How critical is this retaining clip..."

It's not. It doesn't 'retain' anything. Only the pin passing through the caliper and pads retains them.

Not sure, but I think as the pad wears down it reduces the chatter - goo on the brake piston between the pad and cylinder could do the same job better,...?

Because if the pin goes, the pads goes flying and that little clip won't stop them. For that matter, the goo won't either,...

You don’t need half that brake stuff anyway. Just wear thick boots.

Thanks all, I will be chattering and Fred Flinstoning at the stops!

I chamfered the leading edge of the rear pads after abrading them on concrete, then scratched up rotors with sand paper & lubed pin & back of pads.

Squeal is gone for now!

If they squeal again, just coat the brake rotors and pads in household oil. Should take care of it for good. If that doesn't take care of the problem, just wait until the very last second, then stand on the brakes at speed. Squeal should go away.
