Check the whole lot again incase a bolt has come loose ,also the antiroll bar bushes but i would suspect that the caliper support bracket could be loose ,in the caliper depending on the braking system is rubber bushes where the two bolts go through that hold the caliper to the mount ,but their are at least three types of brake systems fitted to this vehicle so have a good look as i cannot always be right with any mass produced vehicle as they use different suppliers and without looking myself its difficult to know

My prob was a same:the metal base of the new pads were smaller a tiny bit...A small piece of steel sheet under the pad solves the problem.
Be sure the pads still can move sideways- to the disc and back...

I have a 2000 chevy malibu. I recently replaced the front brake pads. After this when driving down the road when i hit bumps something in the frontend rattles, i can hear and feel it.. when i hit or ride...


A loose pad could do it.
Check the pad anti-rattle clips again. The pads should be snug in the calipers. Its possible the new pads are not the exact same shape as the old ones.

Brakes rattle


To your direct question - I don't know the Highlander model in detail, but as a general response, if the brakes are noisy when NOT applied, the piston in your new caliper may not be returning properly.

The return spring in disc brakes is actually the rubber fitted around the caliper piston. If this is causing the piston to be wrongly positioned, the brakes will be noisy. Check that the rotor can be turned by hand when the brakes are not applied. Also check that the piston is not retracting from the pads a very long way, which it should not do.

It is worth making very sure the spring clips are fitted correctly. Some can be easily put in the wrong way round.

If the brakes are squealing when applied, that is a different problem. You can get a disc brake anti squeal liquid, which is applied to the back of the pad on assembly to the caliper. Also double check all the anti squeal shims are correctly installed.

At this range, that's all I can think of right now.

I had my rear brake pads replaced and now have a rattle from the pads. Goes away if I pull up the handbrake one notch or step o n the brake pedal lightly.


There should be an adjustment to take up the slack in the parking brake cable. Although, If the brakes were properly serviced, there should not be any looseness in the brake pads. There are sprays and stick on pads that go on the back of brake pads to prevent rattles and squeaking. It would necessitate removing the brake caliper and brake pads. Personally, I would take it back to the shop that did the job and make them fix it. New pads should not rattle.

fluid on the pad can cause the pad to stick and then slip--this can cause noise when the pad breaks loose from the disk. fix the leak and clean everything with brake cleaner (or put in new pads)

Grinding noise when I pull off and clunking noise on bumps


Front hub bearing. If you were the one who replaced the pads you should have turned the hub while the caliper was off and checked for roughness or wobble. Imagine the rotor wandering from side to side and rubbing the pads; thats what a worn hub will do.

Brakes


first make sure to ask if the cv joints or axels are new or rebuilt,
if they are rebuilt, make sure to have the ring close to the sensor inspect for posible crack on it, and on the brake light most of timesx they come with a wear sensor, make sure that sensor is been replaced, since here you are not explaning if you replace the brakes your self or a shop did it, you might explained but i did not see it or pay atention , any way make sure to doble check than the wear sensor for brakes is been replaced, since not all the auto repairs will do it, and finally i suspect than one of your calipers might be loose, just have your car take to a diferent auto repair than offer free brake inspection and have them check for posible loose calipers
