G'day guys. I've noticed recently that when I apply my brake and come to a stop, there's a click in the front driver's side wheel area. This sometimes also happens when I turn sharply, but not all the time.

Anyone have any ideas about what this is?

Cheers!
Braiden.

ok, i getthe same thing going over bumps.
my issue is the caliper slapping the pads in the holder.

get under it and have a look.

if ya lucky... it could even be the centre cap on the wheel.

i used to get a clicking sound and after a while i realised it was the wheel trim. So when i found out that it was a wheel trim, every time it made a noise i kicked it (cabbi trick) and it was all good.
