    997S steel brakes clunking ?

    Is it true that the 997's conventional brake pads clank when going from reverse to forward? (see - http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/showt...threadid=16011)

    Re: 997S steel brakes clunking ?

    Hi, I was the person who reported the clunking on the 6speedonline forum.

    Does anybody else have this problem?

    Update: just got back from the dealer. We had the car up on the rack and the front wheel removed. The brake pads clearly are loose. You can rock them back and forth by hand. They appear to be installed correctly. The problem is that there is only 1 pin in the center holding the pad in, and it can rotate around the pin. On other models, there are guides that hold the pad in place, or two separate pins.

    Tech says that the calipers on the 996TT steel brakes are different and do not have this problem.

    At this point, there isn't anything that can be done. Perhaps P will come out with a fix in the future, such as a new pad, or a bracket or something.

    The dealer will report the problem to his P contact and wait to hear, but I'm not holding my breath. I may try to contact Brembo myself.

    1300 miles and no clunking.
