Q: New brake pads are making a repeating/clicking noise while in reverse.

asked by on

New brake pads are making a repeating, clicking noise while in reverse. I had some new brake pads (Duralast Gold) and rotors (Duralast rotors) from Autozone. Since they were installed, I'm hearing a repeating/clicking noise whenever I'm in reverse and it's also coming from the left front. I know there was some type of grease in the brake pad box. Any help would be appreciated!

My car has 178000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The brake pads may not have been cleaned off good. The pads may need to be replaced if they got grease soaked. The brakes should be inspected for rotor burnish from the pads grease that was on the pads. You may need to replace the rotors and pads again.
