Brake Noise

I have installed several sets of rear brakes in the past 119k miles but, I recently installed a new set of factory BMW rear pads and now have this terrible squeal noise at any speed until I brake then there is no noise. First I thought maybe I didn't install the anti rattle clip properly so I removed it and reinstalled it the opposite direction and it still makes the same noise. There appears to be no damage to the disk or brake pads and the brakes stop and work as normal despite the noise. Help guys!

Re: Brake Noise

Sounds like your caliper is dragging/sticking...
