mine did that a month ago, it was the clip holding the brake pad on. it was pushing the whole caliper down causing it to feel loose causing vibration. I bent the clip back over the brace and was back to normal.
hope this helps.

Yea^^^^^ Remove the wheel & make sure you don't bend the clip. I hate those dang clips. I don't have to deal w/ then anymore.
