strange noise from the brakes

Recommended Posts

Well I replaced what I though to be wore out brakes on my 99 Boxster. After doing this my brakes squeak really bad. and also when reversing when I press the brakes for the first time I hear a loud click which sounds like all 4 brake pads shifting in the calipers. Now I have done everything I can think of to figure out what is going on but with no luck. Anyone out there with a good idea as to why I hear the brake pads shifting around?

You say you have done everything...but did you remove the pads a second time and recheck that everything went in exactly as it should have? If not do it and look specifically at the pad fit in calipers and caliper fit to wheel carriers. If all else fails, install original pads and see if noise goes away or get your wallet out and visit the dealer.

Yes sorry. I have swaped back the orginal pads with the same results. I have pulled these a couple of times and everything seems to fit just fine so I am not sure. I have some new front rotors coming that I am going to be putting on so I am going to wait till after I replace them before I think about going to the dealer :). I have also read about people using the anti-rattle plates on their boxsters but these don't seem to fit my 99 so all I have done is lube up the back of the pads and the pad retaining clips.
