    Default 2000 306 XSI - Rattling caliper

    Hello All,

    I have a 2000 model 306 XSI and it has developed a rattling noise on the left hand front wheel.

    Upon some investigations it appears the caliper is moving slightly on the carrier.

    I've had a look online and have found a few sources for new slide pins but am wondering if this will fix it? The car is fitted with Bosch calipers and the only listings I can find for 306 with these style of caliper is GTI6, would it be fair to assume they are the same unit?

    Finally, any local sources for these parts?

    Cheers and thanks

    Are you positive it's not drop links? Any sign of rattles in the front end and you can start looking at drop links, sway bar bushings and lower control arms.

    If it is the calipers, or drop links then all parts are easy to source... Not sure about local though. Where are you, tTas. Right?

    Hello,

    Drop links are new as I assumed it was them causing the noise, after some poking around the caliper has obvious movement in it and the rattle matches the movement in the unit.

    Assume EAI and the like will have the slide pins?

    Cheers

    Have you found out why the caliper worked itself loose ? It should only do that if there is some serious sideways movement....my 505 did that with a rear caliper and I found out that the rear hub had come loose.

    Can you actually see any signs of wear on the slide pins? My 280k 205 had a rattly caliper (mostly in reverse) but the slide pins still looked brand new after giving them a wipe, however the seals were shot so I assume it was sticking from going dry. After cleaning it down and regreasing my clunking has gone.
