Icon8 FRONT BRAKES ARE MAKING A CLICKING NOISE???

What's up luder's! I have been having a problem with my front brakes making a clicking noise when I slightly press on the brakes. I also believe my rotors are a bit warped and wondering if that could be the problem. I also hear a loud click as soon as I take off. It sounds like its coming from the front right and rear right. It's pretty annoying.

Hi Ninja,
If your rotors are warped that would most likely be the cause of the clicking noise. If you can feel the brake pedal pulsing when you brake it's time to fit new pads and rotors, don't forget to break them in gently. The only other thing I can think of that could make that kind of noise would be wheel bearings but my money's on the rotors.

Matt.

Re: FRONT BRAKES ARE MAKING A CLICKING NOISE???

Typically if you hear a noise during weight shift or load change it has to be suspension related. Try checking you ball joints and where you control arms connect to the body. You also should check shocks, springs, and bushings.

Re: FRONT BRAKES ARE MAKING A CLICKING NOISE???

actually it could be a number of things... but i have a feeling that the bracket shims?? aren't sitting right... when i say bracket shims im talking about the metal clips that go onto the caliper bracket that the brake pads actually slide into. these would cause the pads to actually slide and click depending on which direction you are going. do me a favor try going forward... then go backward if it clicks both ways ... thats your problem. warped rotors give you a vibration in the brake pedal and steering... you feel that in higher speeds. if you are just taking off.. it could be suspension...ex: ball joints, tie rods, or even axles. hope this helps.

Re: FRONT BRAKES ARE MAKING A CLICKING NOISE???

I just checked them out and it is the brake pad shims were missing, so that fixes that problem. As for the clicking when I take off its still a work in progress, and I'm thinking it is with the suspension b/c i have coil overs and I raised my car quite a bit due to massive pot holes and uneven pavement. So I'm gonna try lowering it a lil bit to put more weight on it.

i can guarantee lowering your car again won't help. if something in your suspension is messed up, its messed up. w/o changing something you're still gonna get the same click. and by lowering it you're not putting more weight on anything. you're just lowering the center of gravity. chances are its your axles. if its just one single click upon initial movement then likely its your axles. you should be careful with your wording too. brake pad shims are the shims that go between the caliper and the pads. and they are NOTnecessarily required. i don't have them on mine and i never had a problem. what bustr is referring to is the 2 metal clips, one on each bracket (upper and lower) that the caliper bolts up to. what the pads slide against. essentially its the brake pad guides. if those guides are what you were referring to, and just used the wrong wording, then forget what i said about your axles.

Yea sorry wrong wording I meant the anti rattle clips. And you do make sense about lowering the car.

Re: FRONT BRAKES ARE MAKING A CLICKING NOISE???

i have the same problem. Like the noise started out of nowhere. It only does it when I'm in P and i step on the breaks and it turns on the E brake light on the dashboard. It hasn't done this before and i don't know what it could be. It has good amount of brake fluid and the brakes are still good. What could it be ? The noise is like under the shift nob or the e brake it self. I'm not sure but would y'all know?????
