    Front o/s brake has started to make a clicking sound (as if something is rubbing on the caliper) had wheel off and checked the heatshield/dust cover thing at the rear of the disc but this is ok, when I spin the wheel the noise seems to come from inside the caliper?

    I don't have the tools or the know how to go any further with my investigation, can anyone suggest what this may be?

    I don't want to shell out to get car looked at if the issue can be DIY'd.

    BTW the brakes are still working fine with no warnings on dash.

    Cheers in advance

    Did you check to see if the caliper has not become loose from the carrier?

    I checked the 2 bolts at the back of the caliper which appear to hold it on, I couldn't get them any tighter or loosen them? There didn't seem to be much play in the caliper tho.

    Is the anti rattle plate still on the caliper?

    And does it make the noise if you rotate the wheel back and forth?

    If yes then it's the pads moving in the caliper frame.
