    Default Click from OS Rear caliper area when brakes applied

    about 5 weeks ago I had my rear discs and pads replaced. The fitter had trouble getting the rear OS carrier undone. Now when I press the brake pedel at very low speed, I hear a clcik from the rear OS brake caliper area as if the caliper is moving slightly as the brake pads grab the disc. I have wiggled the caliper with my hand but seems rock solid (no play). I am taking it back to have it checked out but any ideas?

    my 1.9cdti did this for months until i recently replaced the disks & pads. i put it down to the last set of pads not being a perfect fit in the callipers(they were cheap ones). i've got VX ones in now & no click noise when nearly stopped as your experiencing.
