Why Brakes Click When Changing Direction-Hardware Clips


Wondering why your brakes click? If you just changed your pads and rotors and every time you change direction from forward to reverse there is a clicking noise coming from the brake, then most likely it’s hardware clips.

 

Most modern cars have an anchor bracket style caliper that uses stainless steel clips to load the pads in a certain direction. These clips are spring steel and can wear out.

If you did not receive clips they can be purchases online as part of a hardware kit. Be sure to lubricate the clips with a high performance synthetic brake lubricant.
