Do your brakes click
Another question on the continous saga's we all have on brakes and bleeding etc.
I recently bleed my brakes after installing new pads. As you may have read elsewhere, I had some difficulties but all seems sorted now. However, when I brake at very slow speed, I can head the calipers clicking once as they apply pressure to the pads. They probably click at higher speeds also, but of course I cannot hear it.
I cannot say that they never did this in the past, but I do not recall it. The brakes work perfectly, but just when I am braking at very slow, they sort of clack, clack clack as I brake, brake, brake.
Unless you guys have a suggestion, I am going to assume that the clacking is just because the power brakes do not give the perfect feel that directly controlled brakes do, maybe the pump is just kicking in at that point and applying a jump in the pressure applied.
If I brake very gently, they do not click, but I do mean very gently.
Thanks in advance for any comments.
