hi there is a ticking noise coming from the front left wheel (presume it is from the brake)

it occurs every time i push the brake pedal.

ideas? i originally thought there may have been a crack in the actual disc because the noise sounded like a ticking/crackling as if the metal was slowly splintering and fracturing, but it is not this.

best bet to replace pads just in case it is playing up? this is the most likely cause right? just strange it can happen so abrupt if its from pad wear.

thanks

Check anti rattle plates that sit on stub axel between brake pad and stub axel.On the AU they had insulated ones that prevent rattling and squeal.Check your dealer I have used these in the past to help prevent this same problem.

I agree with Jumpstart, I used them on my EB when I had it as I was getting weird kind of like clunk noise, not loud just there. I just replaced them on my AU as I did a bit of work to the breaks, they are available of course from Ford, Part number is AU 2K399A and cost $4.85 each. :)
