    Could also be the pads fitted the wrong way round,if the pads have 2 small pins/lugs on one of the pads this pad goes to the outside NOT the piston side.

    On my mate's car a previous garage had fitted the pads,we then fitted greenstuff pads and copied the fitting, then the noise started,various re-greasing and checking everything it was still there,as it was going into a dealer for a service (a lease car) they also checked for the noise and they didn't spot the problem even with them stripping the brakes!, only on the second visit did a second engineer spot it.So just because it's been fitted that way and it works doesn't mean it's right!

    The one i have this showing on the outside rattles badly the one not fitted this way doesn't, so now i'm more confused!
