New Front Brakes Clang HELP!

My mechanic - an experienced and specialized Defender Mechanic in the NE - installed a new front passenger side break-calipers and pads on my 1994 D-90 NAS 80 K miles). The brakes now make a banging or clanging noise as we drive along unless some minimal pressures is applied to the brakes. It is most annoying and proving a challenge to remedy.

Suggestions are sorely needed.

Loose bolts on the caliper, tighten them or bring it back to your mechanic

Yes. You should be able to work this out quickly. Let me know if you need help with this, I'm not that far from you. I bet I can guess who worked on it...

I wouldn't worry about it; might be the bolts were worn from too many brake jobs and they just backed off themselves. Brakes are a pretty standard install so I think it's less about your mechanics competence and more about something out of his control or overlooked

Are they aftermarket callipers? I've heard that the holes for the pins in the front callipers are slightly too large which can cause a clicking noise when applying the brakes.

You're probably right about mechanic, but there is one serious hack job here that puts himself out as an expert

Brake pad hardware missing or worn out, on a defender should be a two inch long coil spring dressing the pin sandwiched in between the pads, one on each pin...rovers north or ab have them.
