Front brake pads sticking slightly ..?

Hi Guys

Has any of you's experienced the front pads clicking when using brake hold or the electronic hand brake then braking for the first time going forward....... or either reversing then driving forward which results in the pads clicking( sticking a bit ) the first time you apply the brakes



thanks in advance

Is it clicking because the pads loose or more like a grabbing noise ?

Would say clicking (sticking) more than grabbing if you reverse then go forward applying the brakes you get a click as if the pads are moved into the correct position if that makes sense ..?

Very common issue. It's usually because the shims behind the pads have worked loose or weren't installed - the noise is the pads moving.

If that is the case, I would get it looked at ASAP - new car should be 'perfect', or are these running without shims?

Agreed! Only just noticed this was a brand new motor.

Forget our advice - get to the dealer ASAP

That would be very unusual, surely, or is this a sign of the build quality and QC checks performed prior to departing the factory?

I've had a car without shims, and yes, they rattle a lot - over every bump - but I've never had a shimmed car have its shims fall out.

I had replaced the front brakes of my previous 8G diesel with FN2 calipers, but no shims were in the rebuild kit, initially - had to get them separately and retrofit them - totally 'normal' once fitted.

Does this mean that by default there are no shims fitted, or yours was just an exception?

There's a post with a video - front pads sit in a holder then are placed into the caliper - good as shims to me in a different form.

In the that video there are shims on the the pads, the pad retainers are fitted in the calipers, and the anti rattle springs are fitted to the pads.

I was told that they don't have shims but when looking at the pads i can see the shim same as these but with the addition of the Anti rattle springs fitted to my callipers to stop them clicking.
