I have been experiencing a squeal from the front right brake caliper which on inspection turned out to be coming from the disc making contact with the fingers on brake clip (part 3) RealOEM.com BMW E38 740iL Front wheel brake-Brake pad sensor
The fingers appear to have folded away from the caliper and been scouring the disc surface. Has anyone ever seen or experienced this before, or have any explainations about the cause?
What is the function of this clip (I am assuming that isn't to scour the disc surface. )
So I should replace this clip then? It doesn't seem to make contact with the pad at all, but its a little hard to see the face of the pad and disc clearly.
What brand of replacement disc should I be looking at? The disc has got a reasonable scour in the outside face, but still plenty of undamaged face to grip onto.
