Rear brakes noise....

Wed Jul 13, 2016 3:38 pm

Banging my head against a wall here guys and need some advice/help. In the past 6 months I have replaced the rear brakes on my exy twice. First time for some "cheap" disks/pads and shoes and I thought the tick tick tick noise was because of that, but only this past weekend I have replaced the disks, pads, shoes and caliper pins for decent, expensive items. brembo pads, pagid shoes and lockheed disks. I still have this tick tick tick noise coming from the drivers side, I know it has something to do with the brakes because when I apply light pressure it stops. Is there anything else I should be looking for that I could have missed when replacing these?

And to top it off, the nearside front top strut bearing has gone :bigcry:

Have you checked the rear bearing?

Have you checked to see if the backing plate is rubbing anywhere?

Have you looked at both discs for score marks or temperature variation between both sides?

Kind Regards,

sorry for ultra late reply and thx for the reply Eoinsully.

everything on the rear is new, pads, shoes, disks and hub.

I have had a 32mm socket on the hub to see i there is any movement and there is, I am just waiting on a deep socket now to see if I can tighten this up a bit more.

Is there a drawing anywhere on site that shows a build up of this?

I took a video of the movement on the hub, is this normal?

The only movement I notice, is the disc on the hub, which is normal with wheel off. I'd be more concerned with wheel movement when jacked up, by rocking it top to bottom and left to right.

Kind regards,
