    Rear brake noise

    Had a puncture. It has been repaired.

    Fine.

    When I apply the rear brake there is horrible noise - its even hard to describe - but its loud

    any clues to look for?

    Could it be the back of the pads chattering or something like that?

    any help gladly received

    my first guess would be that the caliper mount is not installed  correctly

    the tyre company did this - out of my direct sight.

    I am going to investigate shortly.

    i will let people know.

    This is the second time they cuased a problem - first itme they lost one front bolt and did not tighten up the bolts to the correct torque.

    I wont name them yet....

    I am going to guess that the pads are not installed correctly. To be honest you cannot install the caliper wrong since the axle runs through the mount(though I guess a complete imbecile could install it completely incorrectly.

    Check that there isn't a brake pad hanging don at the back.

    My thought is that the caliper mounting bracket is not in the frame slot allowing the whole assembly to move....a rookie mistake but not one that is out of the realm of possibilities

    wheel removed

    grease on the back of the pads fixed it
