Tonight when I got home my model 3 was making huge squeaking noise when on reverse, i inspect my front pads both of them are touching rotor, is this normal, I thought they suppose to have space between pad and rotor?
I’ve read that there are two possible causes, and one of them affected me.
For some vehicles built in May and June 2018, the clips that hold the pads to the calipers were defective. They’d fracture and the pad would rub on the caliper when the brakes were lightly applied. Mobile service replaced my clips in January and I’ve never heard a squeak since.
I’ve read in these forums that another potential cause is getting small pieces of road debris caught between the pad and the rotor. People say that the debris usually works itself out in a few days.
