I never noticed it before because the radio or road noise covered it up & I'm getting old. But my younger son heard it 1st.
The Nissan mechanic said it was the brake pads shifting. Anyone else experience this?

should NOT touch the rotor during normal non-braking operation.
The cylinder plunger should be pulled slightly back off
the back of the brake pad, by the rubber gasket/seal around the
cylinder, which should allow the pad to move back off the rotor.
Any touching would produce a lot of heat, some drag, and
some wear on both the pad and the rotor.
But, maybe that was in the "olden days"?
