Hi,
I have a rattling noise at the rear axle when going over bumps, stops when I press the brake pedal.
Found that the rear brake pads are slightly loose when the brake is not pressed.
Do they have any additional anti-rattle pads other that the spring at the small rear-side of the pads?

My parts dealer has listed two different ones, one for "Lockheed" brakes:

and one for "ATE" brakes:

I can´t make out any Brand on the caliper since the casing is so rusty and can´t see which set would fit.
Any ideas ?
Thanks.
greetings, Max.

Original were TRW calipers but with the spring at the rear they shouldn't need anything extra (and neither of the ones you linked to will fit anyway.. I had a rattle going over bumps and also if I kicked the rear tyre. That was the dust shield bracket that had rusted through and it was the dust shield rattling not the pads.

Hm. I´m sure it´s the pads, I can wiggle them back and forth in the caliper with my hand and replicate the noise....

Are the springs properly inside the calipers and not poking through the hole? Once the caliper is pressing them down, they shouldn't be capable of moving.
