Hello, I'm having this problem with my car and was told it will rattle as long as non-OEM pads are installed. So, I need original rear brake pads. Anyone with an experience with this? There's someone with a C70 with the same problem here:<br><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zeropost?cmd=tshow&id=18528" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/z...18528</A><p>Any help will be appreciated.<p>Will these work??<p><A HREF="http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=220430247299" TARGET="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors...47299</A>

How are the pads being held in place.... You must be having some noise if you really dont have those clips :/

Notice that the pads are not attached to the piston like they are in the first picture? This is the reason they are rattling. They need the spring clip from the fist picture to "lock" on to the piston.<p><IMG SRC="http://lh5.ggpht.com/_23HIRiawUio/Sj4zuWz9qBI/AAAAAAAAAjQ/ozCxoceth4g/s800/100_0300.jpg" BORDER="0"><br>Todd<br>

HERO!!!!! I just bought my '07 a week ago and can't stand the stupid rattling noise anymore! I think I need some new pads though because the "stealership" I bought it from said they just replaced the pads a week prior and everything "should be good"

I did it wrong the first time and had a horrible rattle going over small bumps. The rattle went away when i stepped on the brakes or pulled up on the E-brake. The second time around i did the job right, have over 300 miles on the pads with not one rattle.<br>Todd

Re: (Bigblk4)

I have the exact same problem...step on the brakes, no noise! For some reason I also think the guy that owned it before put lowering springs on it, so of course my shocks and struts also may need to be replaced. Definitely doing this brake thing tomorrow AM though. I hate not working, but it gives me time to do all the fun stuff I need to do :-D. <p>Jeff

Re: (lando_pr)

Quite welcome. Trust me the rattling was driving me nuts, I have about 1/2 mile of rough roads right by my place. Some days when I was on the phone I would need to pull the e-brake just to quite the rear end of the car down so I could finish my conversation. <br>Todd

Re: (Bigblk4)

the verdict is------ gotta go to the dealer. the pads were installed correctly and everything seemed kosher, so I have to go to the dealer for a recall anyway, might as well have them fix the rattle
