Buick Lucerne CXL: My 09 Lucerne exhibits a rattle of the rear

This answer was rated:

My 09 Lucerne exhibits a rattle of the rear caliper. I can bump it with wheel off and hear the rattle. Appears to be some play on the slide pins. Is there a fix...or what can be done to eliminate this rattle
good morning my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you today

If it is the rear caliper, there are replacement pin kits available separately from the calipers.

I would remove the pins first to see if they are worn out

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I have removed them..they don't really look worn, but there is some play of the caliper you can feel and see by hand movement.

ok, I would replace the pins and bushings and see if that takes care of the play. if not, the bracket that the pins go into may be the failure
