Default Can a chipped front brake pad cause noise?

I replaced these pads a few weeks ago and I took off my brakes to lubricate the slider pins and I see that one of my pads were chipped. I don't know how it happened and I am pretty sure it wasn't like that when I got them. I had a loud noise that would come up 65 percent of the time I lightly brake and I thought maybe it might be a slider pin seeing as how I didn't lubricate them in a while and it did need lubricated but the noise is still there so could it be the chipped pad? Could sanding the rough edges of the chipped area help or should I just replace the pad?

Hard to say without a better description of the chipped pad. If just the edges are chipped, I'd say no. But if half the material chipped off then yes. Either way, I'd say those are a faulty set of pads and I'd return them.

A picture if the pads would help.

Good luck, and keep us posted.
