    Default rear wheels, rattley noise

    Right I've had the vectra in for a rattling noise from the rear over bumps and come away with some new exhaust mounts but it hasn't solved the problem. It sounds like its coming form the rear wheels and can be heard over bumps and when coasting or decelerating. I've recently had new brake pads on so could it be something to do with that?

    Thanks

    put your hands on the top of the wheels and give them a good hard tug..

    if they move or you can hear a noise, then its the upper arms.

    Have they got anti-rattle shims in? Have the pads been fitted the correct way round ? Or could be as above worn bushes

    checked the side to side movement but it all seems good on both sides. Is it possible to put the brake pads in the wrong way? what are anti-rattle shims? thanks for all your help so far
