    Default Brake Caliper Rattle

    My 87 developed a rattle/jingling sound from left front. Caliper is loose even though bolts are tight. Does anyone have any ideas? Brakes work fine although since this started the loose one squeals. Driving me nuts.

    Check the caliper pin. Make sure the E-clip at the inside of the caliper is still there.

    I agree with ZumZum. Check for wear (grove) on the pin and caliper.

    Will check the pin and clip. Where are you in Buffalo? I am a lifelong Buffalonian that relocated to Memphis last summer.
