The pads in the calipers do this every morning when I reverse out of the garage & turn around in the drive. After that its fine.

I think it is quite a common occurance. (rather than 'problem' :D )

I am now experiencing the same type of problems, is there any chance it could be front bushes. If so how easy is to replace them I have done them on a previous car and it was quite simple?

I have only just got my car back from Lexus about a week ago ..........

The clonking / creasing noise was the clips holding the pads in place.

Lexus just re-tensioned the clips, and now all is fine !

Mine was just the same mate ......... it got to a point where you could even feel the judder on your brake pedal !! and people would turn around because they could hear the car ....

I'm pretty sure it's just the clips !

As soon as the missus is home I'll give it the once over.

Thanks for your help I'll keep you posted on the result.

I had this problem and agree with scarface - Lexus Stockport changed the clips that hold the caliper in place under warranty - all gone now and no clonking noise!

I used to have it on my Mk.1 GS. Would clunk once when stopping, then would behave until stopping in the other direction (i.e. reverse), when it would clunk back again.

Are the clips easy to re-tension? if its going to be hard then maybe i should just buy some new omes.....anyone know a price on new ones. or is it the usual toyota parts price of about £100,000 per clip. :P
