1999 Olds Intrigue: 3.8...backing..the brakes..reverse

This answer was rated:

I have a 1999 Olds Intrigue 3.8. When backing up the brakes make a pulsating crunching sound but still stop. As soon as you proceed forward and tap the brakes there is a small click and everything is fine again (until you reverse again). Any thoughts
It sounds like there is a loose caliper or caliper bracket so that is what I would check first.
