Help with with the noise in my new brakes

Discussion in 'General Motoring' started by Devils Advocate, Oct 8, 2003.

  1. I just had a new caliber,rotor,pads installed on front of my 1991 honda
    accord exr.
    I have getting a constant noise in front right tire coming front
    brakes......only on driven side where the new caliber was installed. When I
    press the brake it goes away.

    I Just popped the tire off to have a look and the pads are quiet slack on
    teh caliber.

    Whats going on?

  2. They probably forgot to put the clips and shims back on the caliper

  3. I suggest that you take it back to the mechanic that done the work and
    tell him or her about the problem. He or she should be able to fix the
    problem. It's hard for me to guess as to the exact cause of the noise.
