My Commando has the Grimeca front brake from RGM, and although this is a good stopper, I hear an annoying rattle from the bake pads, at idle and at low speed.,
It seems the rattle is getting worse, and I can move the brakepads by hand forward and back slightly in the caliper.
Suggestions for a cure?

Biro/pen springs on the split pins between the pads, do not go overboard on the strength of the springs as you do not want to try to use the brake and have to pull the lever twice.

Separate the split pins with a flat blade screw driver between the brake pads.

Thanks for the replies, will give it a try, it seems that the rattle got worse over time, to the point where it becomes annoying.
