    Default clunking noise after pad change

    Hi, After changing my front pads ive noticed a slight clunk noise when i apply the brakes, not everytime and only ever when i first apply pressure.
    it only seems to be coming from one side.
    I did wonder if id forgot to tighten something up so i double checked the whole thing again and everything seems nice and tight.

    Any ideas ?

    your right they wernt vauxhall, not quite £12 though, £22 but the only place that had them in on sunday.
    it could do with new disks to be honest so il probly do the lot if it annoys me too much.

    funny though, i spent ages deciding which pads for the bike, but the car i just buy anything going... maybe i should be a bit more carefull

    Yeah a new set of GM pads will solve the problem. I had the exact same problem with a cheap set before and a set of vauxhall pads solved it.

    I just got a nice deal from LMF on GM pads and discs for all 4 corners

    Vx changed the design of the pads to eliminate the clunking...buy genuine Vx and they'll have a spring/clip kinda thing on the back that gets pushed tight to stop them moving around when the piston applies pressure.
