clicking noise in rear brakes

I have been having a clicking noise in my rear brakes for awhile now and I havent been able to solve it even after taking it to 2 separate mechanics and removing the tires a couple times myself. The clicking happens only when I am lightly applying the brakes coming up to a light then goes away when I apply more pressure to the brakes. The brakes are performing normal I just hate the loud clicking when I coming up to a light.
Is anyone else having this issue?

Ah..now something I've incountered myself.. Easy fix.. to some degree.. I founf out that its the brak eline (emergaincy) containment system. Basicly All I did was to regrease the hand brak4e system, with wd40, and a little grease at the main contact points.. Often when you off road or even driving through rain, mosture and of course mud can get into this so called sealed area and cause the springs and other componants to stop moving as freely as they should.. Regreasing and oiling these lines over a few weeks can help ease the stress and the sound your hearing.. This did for us, but every so often we still need to hold the hand break button down/in and pull up and down a few times to make sure the oil is getting to those parts needed as well and making sure the hand brake is loose.

Had this happen on various vehicles - sounds like one of the springs (or another part) in the ebrake has come loose and is bouncing around. No amount of grease or WD-40 is going to fix it if that is the case. Take off the wheel, the rotor and have a e-brake repair kit handy and reseat the ebrake components. I think I did this 20 times on my BMW over the years - and the internals of the Wrangler look the same. If you leave it to long the rattle might turn into a loud nasty metal on metal grind as the pieces break up. This is all of course based on my assumption that the clicking is actually metal rattling around - might even be that your ebrake it too tight on one wheel. All in all its really good to know how they work - as you one day or another have an issue with them.

Yeah, Just have to keep the line well oiled/greased once in a while.

Perfect Image @Borknagar!
