Ticking Noise after Brake Replacement - Handbrake?

Recommended Posts

I recently replaced the calipers, discs and pads on my 530i Touring - the handbrake was adjusted via the gear wheels with the cables and shoes untouched, and it works well.
 

However, there’s now a new and noticeable speed-related ticking/clicking sound from around the near-side rear wheel, which I assume must be handbrake-related - has anyone had similar? Nothing is obviously loose or needing adjusting.

I had that on mine recently. One of the holes in the backing plate had corroded and the pin ended up coming loose and finally dropped. I had the ticking and grinding from the pin being ground away.

Thanks - no rust to speak of, so I think it may be more mechanism-related - just can't see anything obvious.
