    Default Clicking from rear after pad replacement

    I changed my rear pads recently and have noticed a clicking noise when the wife drives off. I can't hear anything from inside the car and have checked the pads and can't see anything obvious. Any ideas???

    quite common when changing direction (ie from backwards to forwards and vice versa) it could be the pads re-seating themselves.

    Is it only happening under breaking?

    sounds too loud for it to be something in the tyre but will check anyway.

    Happens when driving off without any braking.

    Mine did the same when i changed the rears.
    I did the usual tyre checks for stones etc. but found nothing.
    It went away after a couple of days and hasn't come back.


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    Are they cheap pads? Ive had this problem before after getting cheap budget pads fitted, not a perfect fit. Replaced them with GM ones and problem solved.

    I had a clicking from my fronts after changing them. Today I took them off and wiggled the offending caliper. Compared to the other side it was fairly loose. The only thing thats stops them moving is the spring so played with that and no more noise. So check the springs are tight.

    My rears have done this since K Fit replaced them. I took them back and they fiddled with something that made the noise go away for a few days but it did return. I suspect they fitted pattern brake pads that are not exact size as OEM and this is the cause. It is like the pads are snatching and moving slightly just when the brakes are applied. Only notice the noise at very slow speeds, probably they always do this but the other noises at higher speeds mask it.
