94 Camry

My 94 Camry makes a "clacking sound when the brakes are applied, usually in reverse. Brakes work fine. One clack only.
Had new pads & rotors installed in the rear. They needed R&R.
Mech said the front pads and rotors are fine. As usual, it did not happen when he drove it
Three days into new rear brakes - it's clacking again. One clack!
I'm quite sure the brakes are fine, but what's up!
Has ABS, no lights are coming on. ito indicate trouble....
Not personally worried about the brakes, but my wife is another story, very apprehensive about expressways, noise, brakes, etc.

Check for worn caliper mounting bushings and studs/bolts.

Common problem on all Toyotas. It is the spring clip that tensions the pad forward. Toyota has even issued a service bulletin explaining all about it.

Basically it explains why it happens and that it is normal
