Squeaky brakes: part no. for anti-rattle clips?

I have a bit of squeaking from my brakes under light application of brakes. At first I thought it was the rear brakes, so when swapping wheels I went ahead and pulled the caliper and pads, cleaned everything, and re-lubed.

Still have some squeaking so I'm planning to pull the front brakes in the coming weeks, which now have Hawk HPS pads (installed a year ago) on the OEM 2-piston calipers. I'm wondering if the small spring clips that the "ears" of the pads slide in might be the culprit. The Hawk pads didn't come with a new set so I had to re-use the old ones and they might be crapping out. I'm talking about part #4 on page 2 here: Ford Service Manuals - REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION.

Notice that the clips are considered part of the brake pad kit. Does anyone know if I can find them separately? For the rear brakes, there is a kit that includes just those clips (apparently the result of a TSB).

Thanks!

This makes sense. The retainer clip thingys on my Wife's car was the culprit for noise and we replaced them. Did you not get any when you purchased the brake pads? Have you tried searching ebay?

No, the Hawk pads didn't come with them. Not knowing a part number, eBay turns up a lot of anti-rattle clips for other generations of Mustang.

For the rear clips, there is a rubber-like backing to the clips (I'm guessing some kind of high-temperature silicone) that probably is designed to dampen vibrations and stop squeaking. The rubber backing on mine was starting to flake off, so I just use more Sil-Glyde lube. Might try that on the front if I can't locate the correct clip.

How worn down are the pads? If they are worn enough, i'd just buy a new pair and say F it.

The front pads look good...plenty of thickness left and only one year of DD use. The rear pads have about 1/8" left so I'm planning to replace them soon, but want to swap the rotors while I'm at it.

Yea definitely. Last thing you need is good pads and worn rotors. Sometimes can cause other noises when people do that.

Yeah, was probably going to do Hawk HPS rear pads plus stock takeoff rotors, since the rears don't really do as much braking as the fronts.

Very true. Do you have caliper covers or anything? May be a good chance to paint the calipers or something why you have everything apart.

Nope, no caliper covers. I'm not big on painted calipers...would probably paint then black if I painted them at all.

Sorry to necro this thread but I seem to be having this same issue but with the rear passenger side. I hear squeaking only when going over bumps, etc. If the surface is smooth and flat (Rare to find in Houston, but there are some roads....) then I don't hear a damn thing.

The way mine sounds reminds me of a Trucks "bed" when going over bumps, etc.

I thought it may have been the rear shock/strut that was recently warranty replaced but when Ford took the wheel off they said right away that the brake is missing the "brake clip" never once did they say "anti-rattle clip" so again I am hoping this thread is what they are talking about.

Is THIS the part I need?

I don't see where it says those fit the 11-14 Mustangs. The clips on my 11 and 14 looks a lot different. So I would say no.

True it does not say but then again it says "not vehicle specific" but I dont know just tired of hearing that squeak!

Makes me feel like my 2012 is from 1912 or something lol or it sounds like a bunch of leprechauns in my trunk making love stains!

I wound up finding them on Rockauto. Let me see if I can dig up the part numbers.

EDIT: Crap, don't have Rockauto's invoice email any more...but it was fairly easy to dig up the part #s on their website.

Ok I use RockAuto all the time actually. Would it be the "Disc Brake Hardware Kit"?

Pretty sure most AutoZone's carry this as well but I'll wait for someone to answer me first.

Thanks for the help!

^ I think so...should include the clips, caliper slide bolts, and other little bits. Was sub-$20, as I recall. Different kits for front and rear.
