Brake pad chatter

Post by Clarky_two on Sun Sep 20, 2015 8:29 pm

The pads move about in the caliper and make like a chatter noise.  They are new pads and new disks from ProAction.  Any ideas?

I have taken them apart and cleaned - but......

Do you use any kind of copper grease on the pins or on the back of the pads? I dont, but wondered could this be part of the issue? The pin is pretty new

Does it make the same noise without the pads in? Could be the disk bolts?

Have you got the spring plate installed between the pads and the brake body?

I will try without the pads , yeah the spring is in, the bolts have been fine for the last month or so. I will properly strip it down in the week and report back

Is it as simple as the sharp edges of the holes in the new discs rattling the pads, and a bit of use would bed everything in and sort it?
