    Hi VH
    your allmost right,it's free play between the pad and the bracket,modified brake pads have a chamfer and a top spring,you most likely have non branded pads fitted,there is no detrament to braking performance just the annoying clicking

    they should do unless of course you have another problem,but my signum has been like this now for 18 months and pads are still ok,i won't change mine untill they are ready.it's just a personal choice.
