Hi guys. had an annoying scrapping noise, knew what it was but cant get my head over why it was happening. The H clip which holds the pads into the caliper was rubbing on the disc. To relive the sound for a few second's i had to apply the brakes. 

 

 

What caused it to rub? ive just taken the wheel off and re orientated the clip. Is this the fix or is something causing it to rub? I applied the brakes and it didnt seem to move the clip at all?

that lower left hand leg of the anti-rattle clip is definitely not sitting square - take the clip off and check if the leg is twisted or if there's a crack along the fold edge

Or better still get a new pair, not that expensive.

ill give it a few drives and see if it starts to scrape again, just didnt know if it was a symptom of anything like piston problems or pads

Take the clip off and do some manual adjustment. It only needs a little tweak. Could be the wheel bearing though allowing the disk to move in relation to the caliper

I squared it up in the caliper and applied the brakes, clip didnt move so im hoping it was just the clip moving !
