Knocking When Braking E46 2004


I had my motor serviced including new rear brake pads last March, but since then when I brake there's a knocking that has same the frequency of the wheel rotation I think. I noticed that the rear pads are too tight and rub off the brake disks and impede the rotation of the rear wheels even when not braking.

I'm not sure if the knocking is coming from the front or rear.

When I steer to the right and brake I noticed that the knocking is worse.
I brought it to the mechanic and they couldn't even hear the knocking never mind diagnose or fix the problem.

Anyone got any ideas?

Your pads

Have a look at your brake pads, where they sit in the caliper, I had the same problem many years back, the Pads were slack in the caliper.
