    Hi.

    Hoping someone can help.

    I have a 17 plate Alhambra and when changing direction ie reverse to forward the front brakes knock. I have had this investigated and told this is normal. The garage have replaced the pads and it still makes the noise. The only way they can get rid of the noise is to grease them up but this only works for a couple of weeks at best.

    The garage aren't helping anymore as they say it's normal movement. Even the technician has confirmed that the noise isn't normal.

    You can move the pad up and down in the caliper by 3-5mm at least.

    Has anyone else had this issue.

    Will

    Hi. My 2015 Alhambra has always done this. Nothing to worry about, just the pads moving slightly.
