Got my 16v brakes on today. I rebuilt the calipers. Brand new ATE rotors and Mintex pads. In the test run its making a noise. Kind of a high-piched scraping kinda noise that varies with engine speed. Almost sounds like something's rattling. Noise goes away when I apply the brakes. Couldn't really hear it going in reverse. I double checked and the wheels DO clear the calipers by about 1/2 inch. Any ideas what this could be.
I hope its just the new pads breaking in. I rebuilt the calipers VERY carefully, took my sweet time on them making sure I did them right. Was very straight-forward.
