Default Cracking noise when braking

I get a crackling noise similar to a spring being extended when
opening a door. (Accord 2000, 4cyl VTECH front-disk, rear-drums)

I get this noise when braking smoothly and it does not seem to affect
braking performance. It drives me nuts and I had the brake system
checked and cleaned and it didnít solve the issue. OEM parts were
used the last time I changed them, rear and front.

Any ideas what this might be?

Could be a cracked spring. Does it happen when turning hard in eitehr
direction?

I'm not sure about this car, but some cars (maybe all, I don't know) have an
actual spring to help return the brake pedal to its top position. I had on
older car where this really did sound like an old screen door. If the sound
could possibly be in the interior, it's worth checking out.

Hi,

Actually, the sound appears as I apply a little pressure on the pedal
for smooth deceleration at low speeds. The spring-like cracking sound
is definately exterior but Iím unsure if at fron or rear.

I read somewhere that brake pad shims may need replacing as they may
allow movement of the pad.

At 140,000 miles (230 000km), brakes have been services a few time so
I may just replace them and see...

Thank you

Well,

I actually replaced front pads & rotors even if they did not need
replacing in appearence.

My mechanicís assumption (itís just that... an assumption) was that
pad material seemed too "hard" and that the crackling noise might
just have been the noise of assembly "movement" at low,low speeds
since it did not rub smoothly against rotors. I never had that noise
at speeds above 30m/h.

Noise is gone...

Thanks to all!
