Brake Caliper Rattles
 
Hey guys. I have a 2001 IS300. While driving on a rough road I can hear the driver side brake caliper rattling. I've pulled the wheel off and checked the bolts. Everything is tight. But if I hit the caliper with my hand it rattles. Does anyone know how I can stop this from happening?

someone may have installed the anti rattle clips backwards or they are missing completely...

I am new to the Lexus world. Whats a anti rattle clip? Are you talking about on the pads?

its the somewhat spring loaded metal clips on the edges of the pads... lexus spring loads them so they don't click, but if they are damaged or installed wrong, they do the exact opposite...

So it could be the pads that are clicking and not the caliper. Also if I back up, stop, then go forward and stop the pads make a loud click sound. Is that also the springs?

It appears that the slide pins for the caliper are worn out. Has anyone had that happen? It's only on the driver side.
