    Default Rattle from brakes?

    I have a 02 plate 1.8 vectra elite, the problem I am having is a rattling noise which appears when driving over bad road surfaces or on cobbled streets is very noticable. When the brakes are gently applied the noise stops and when brakes are off the rattle returns. I have had the car in the garage at the weekend and the brakes were checked but problem is still there. Any ideas what is the cause???

    I had something similar to this recently, thought it was suspension problem, then i noticed when i touched brakes it stopped, it was driving me mad, turns out it was the clips/pins that hold the pads & stops them rattling around, they must have been not tight or missing !!

    Local garage put a new rear brake 'fitting kit' on and its perfect now !
