clicking sound after replacing rear pads and rotors


Recommended Posts

I have a '99 Boxster with 48k on it. Just finished a complete brake job of front and rear pads and cross drilled rotors and now I have a clicking noise from the left rear wheel. Anyone have an idea what it might be? Any help would be appreciated from my fellow Porsche lovers ! Thanks, :cursing: Jake

Make sure the pads backing plates are not hitting the disk where is sticks out toward the wheel. Some pads holes make the pade sit lower in the caliper.....

I had the same kinda thing on my car after i did the brakes. I believe it is the brake shield. Does it happen all the time or just when you are turning?

The remedy is to bend the shield out of the way. Stick a screwdriver inbetween the wheel carrier and the shield and pry it over.
