Noisey rear caliper operation (not pads on rotor)

Ok, the back brakes are stuffed, need new rotors, and pads but one thing that is bugging me is this creaking sound that I can hear when you push the brake pedel and the calipers on the rear move.

Its a old creaking noise, how do I stop this?!

They never uesd to do it, but now its all the time. its at its worse when you are slightly moving and there is some friction on the pads, but at a stand still in neutral if you pump the pedel you her them go creak creak creak creak with the in and out motion of the caliper.

What is it!!??

dismantle and grease up the sliders, most likely water has got in there, and they arent sliding freely.

I figured as much, i had the front ones rebuilt, so it prob exagerated the rear. Thanks for the tip.

Nah, the sliders are easy to do,
unbolt the two bolts holding the caliper, undo the handbrake cable hook, and tap the sliders out with a hammer. Depends how bad they are, some CRC may help get them out. Run them across a wire buff, or use a bit of fine sandpaper to clean them up, and use some carby cleaner to clean all the crap out of the holes in the caliper, then use some anti-seize grease on the sliders. Dont be stingy with the grease either.
