HI all.

Wish i had found this forum before,,,started reading a few threads and been here for ages lol.

Anyway, i have just had new pads all round on my M270.
Since the new pads were fitted i have got a horrible rattle from the fronts whenever i go over potholes/bumps.
The mechanic tells me they need to bed in?
Rattle wasnt there before,,,,its driving me nuts....i love the car,,,but hate the rattle.....
Anyone got any ideas???
He also fitted new Pins when doing the pads?

Thanks for any help you may have.

Andy...

Hello and welcome to the forum,,at a guess I would say wrong pads fitted or the pad with the riveted spring is on the incorrect side, it should be on the inner side

Smart + others :)
OR "cheap" pad have been fitted. Some after market pads are fractionally smaller and rattle in the carrier.
