Has anyone noticed a metallic tapping sound coming from the brakes when first stepping on them in the morning?

I've noticed this over the last couple of days and it's kind of annoying, plus it makes me wonder if something's wrong (but they work great /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif ).

Hi there,
I have noticed that some of the cars do have some brake noise when you first apply the brakes. After a couple uses, the noise should go away.
If it doesnt, I would have them checked, just to be safe.
Best to you,c4c5

Loucas,

I have a "click" sound that comes from the rear of the car when I first step on the brakes, usually backing up from the garage. I thought I may have had a problem, but my 02 does the same thing so I'm not worried about it. I am not sure if this is the same
issue your describing?

I have a noise when first applying the brakes while backing out of the garage also. Is this the emergency brake auto-tighten device? It only happens once, and only in reverse, each day. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_confused.gif

If it only does it when stopping in reverse, it may just be the pads shifting in the caliper since they are chaging direction when braking in reverse. To 'test' the theory, try backing up a few times in the course of the day and see it if clicks when first brakeing going backwards /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif.

It seems that we all have the exact same (perceived) "problem." I'm beginning to think that this is not a problem at all.

Drive On!

Fanatical,

Yes! You're describing what happens with my car exactly. It is in fact while backing out of the garage that I hear this noise. As C4C5Specialist noted, it does go away after a few uses.

However if the car is sitting idle for a few minutes and then I move the car up (like when in line at the drive-through), the noise is there again.
