rear brake issues

Hi, it's not uncommon because the callipers are a poor design. The pad is moon shaped and once a layer of scally rust has formed on the calliper the pads don't fit in the righ tplace any more. As that layer falls away the pads can move too far into the calliper and even rub on the disk.

One solution is to drill a 3rd hole in the ear you will find stuck out of the pad and fit a 3rd brake pin to prevent the pads falling too far inside the calliper.

There are others but they cost a lot more.
