Hey All,

Vehicle - 2012 Jetta S 2.0
I started to hear what sounds like my brake pads falling onto my rotors while cornering or rolling, sometimes it goes away sometimes it just spontaneously starts back up again. I took a swing at replacing the brake pads to see if new retaining clips would do the trick but it immediately started again on my test drive. Could this be a problem with my rotor? With the caliper piston being too worn on the inside lips?

did you look at the back side of the rotors to verify they were not pitted or rusting away? Also, did you lube the slide pins? Let me see if I can find a video that shows the front brakes on a vw. I don't think it will be a Jetta, but the concept should be the same.
