Rattling rear N/S caliper

I have the rattling/knocking rear caliper that I've read is relatively common.
Only when braking gently etc.
Something about a seal failing and causing the caliper to seize a little?
Has anyone fixed this, or am I as well throwing a new (used) caliper on?

First thing to do is make sure your spring is still on the calpier. Also make sure that the pads are moving freely and a good quatly pads also I have seen cheap pads causing this fault

Thanks for the reply.
Not sure what you mean by make sure the spring is still on the caliper?
This rattling did start immediately after I rotated the wheels, but I didn't notice anything falling off the caliper.

The rear brake pads have springs on them that are supposed to clip into the piston on the caliper, if the springs are not clipped in the pad can rattle
