I went out driving with the windows down and I noticed that there was an odd clicking sound coming from my front driver's side wheel. I did some testing and here is what I found out.

1) Clicks x times per rotation of the tire so if I'm going slower there are fewer clicks and if I go faster there is more in a shorter time spaced.
2) Will go away immediately if I even touch the brakes. This obviously makes me think that it has something to do with the brakes.
3) Don't hear anything if I am turning the wheel like making a U turn or something...very noticeable if I'm just driving in the straight line.

Any ideas?

Thank you so much for your time.

maybe some rust on the rotor, or a ridge touching the back plate
I agree. Not worth fixing IMO. Just keep your windows shut. :rolleyes:

There is a small chance that something (pebble?) is caught between the rotor and backing plate. Often a few applications of the brakes IN REVERSE will serve to knock it loose.




PS I liked the chattering teeth vid. :)
