Description: A clicking type noise may be noticed when applying the brakes after changing vehcile travel direction (Drive/Forward to Reverse, Reverse to Drive/Forward). This is a normal noise caused by the required brake pad -to-caliper clearances. When the direction of travel is changed, the brake pads may shift towards the new direction of travel. When the brake pad contacts the caliper, a clicking noise may be heard.
To minimize this clicking noise, a disc brake caliper grease has been made available for use during brake, service operations. Under normal usage conditions this grease should be effective for a period of 6 months to 1 year.
