Audis have a big problem with there front suspension struts.. they always fail and its a very common occurence. it sounds like this could be your problem.. it should be fixed as it can damage bearings in your car and other parts.. the noise should be coming from 1 side only tough.. unless both are failing. this might be the problem

Clicking noise brake pedal


It possibly is the brake light switch, this is mounted on the top of the brake pedal, check the brake lights are working? The switch is not normally loud enough to hear? Check the area around the brake pedal, make sure things like heater air pipes are secure and away from the pedal. If the brakes are ok and the brake lights are working, it has to be something fouling the pedal.

Brake Problem


yes but up to a point
the brake pedal should move about 1" to take up the pedal free play and then be applied smoothly as you press further
the harder you press the more solid stopping action you will get
that way you can feel the brakes working so that you can adjust the braking action for stopping
there should be no hissing noise that occurs when the brakes are being applied
you say hydro booster which is hydraulic booster but a hissing noise will come from an air leak in a vacuum brake booster which indicates that it needs repalcing

Noise in the front lower passenger side


It sounds like your rotors are warped. Do you feel a pulsation in the brake pedal as it's happening? I really haven't seen ball joints or links go out on those cars.

Not sure what it is...but when I'm driving down


Maybe there is something stuck in the brake caliper. Maybe a caliper retaining bolt is loose. Best check it ASAP. If you can't do it yourself, hit up a Midas or some place.

Metal on metal noise when driving. Sounds like brake noise when brake pads are in need of replacement. Sound goes away when the brake is applied. Car only has 20,000 miles on it (2006).


Hello tgiro7: My name is Roger and I will help with your question. The fact the noise goes away when stepping on the brake pedal says the problem most likely is in the brake area. The pads could be worn out even at 20,000 miles.If the noise sounds like it comes from the front remove the wheels and check the front pads. If the pads are bad most likely the rotors are also bad.Same would apply if the noise emits from the rear. When you have the wheels off check to make sure the calipers will slide in and out on the mount pins. Should they be stuck on binding the pads will wear excessively and prematurely fail. The calipers must move freely on the pins. If you drive with your left foot on the brake pedal? The amount of pressure required to apply the brakes and not stop the vehicle is 1 to 2 pounds of pressure. Wont turn on the brake lights but will put pressure on the calipers. This in turn will wear out the brake pads. Another thing to look at would be an out of adjustment brake switch. Reach down and grab hold of the brake pedal. Give a firm tug on the pedal. Should you feel the pedal give and hear a click or two the switch was set to deep and holding the brakes on.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Whenever i apply pressure to my breaks every time im approaching a traffic light or stop sign, i immediately hear a clicking noise. i dont feel anything in the pedal so im confused.


It is most likely the brake pads are worn out,if the clicking is from the front,if it is in the rear pull the wheels and check the brake shoes,there may be some hardwear that has came apart inside the drum.

2009 Hyundai Sonata-clicking noise at brake pedal,brakes applied


This is not a rich mans car so its normal. Your hearing the solinod that lets you take the car out of park after the brake is depressed so the car can't be put in gear unless the brake is on. If the noise bothers you the soliniod can be found and wrapped in insulation like a rich mans car them you can ride on feeling like a rich man too. ( the Beatles sang that a long time ago) and its still true today.

2005 honda accord noise when breaking (transaxle)


You say you hear the noise when you "slow down". Does this mean you hear the thumping noise when you let off the gas and let the car coast to a stop or only when you are applying the brakes to decellerate?
If you only hear the noise while applying the brakes then I would assume it has something to do with your brakes. The first thing that comes to mind would be rotors that aren't true or warped which could make a thumping sound.

Do you feel any vibrations in your foot when it is applying pressure to the brake pedal? If you do feel a sort of pulsating feeling then it could very well be your brakes making the noise.

I hope I was of some assistance,
