What is the clicking sound coming from front axle when slowing down

Richard, to answer your question I would need to know the Year/Make/Model of your vehicle. It may possibly be your brakes though. They will start doing that (making a clicking or squealing noise) when the pads are getting thin. This happens to give you a warning so they don't get to far gone and ruin your brake rotors. Now if you have a front wheel drive vehicle (which is why I asked what kind of car) and the clicking noise started when slowing down AND making a turn, then the problem is likely a CV joint going bad. Basically it's a universal joint at the front wheel that transfers the "power" to the wheel, and when it starts going bad it will give a clicking noise when slowing down AND turning. I would bet it's one of these two problems, and fixing either one shouldn't be to expensive. Good luck !

Back drum break making sounds click click click as I apply the breaks obviously as I slow down so does the clicking sound

Hi Aaron, I believe you'll find that a brake shoe retainer or one of the springs has come adrift in the assembly. ou may like to do the job yourself or take it to a shop. If you would like to do the job, let me know and we'll walk through it together. You will probably need replacement parts, so keep that in mind when deciding. Regards John

When braking at slow speeds just before coming to a halt I feel a small thump from behind, as if a suitcase in the boot had moved forward and hit the back of the seat. this does not happen if braking hard,...

sounds like a silent block bush on the suspension somewhere ,ask a local garage to lift car up and put a crowbar into the works to look for a worn or loose something

Hear a clicking noise when braking. can hear it at slow speed then when put on brake. the brakes are good. had them checked.

Sounds like the rotors are just a little worn and the pads are clicking because they are hitting the high spots. I would have the rotors checked. Also there should be dampiners on the pads, little metal springs to hold the pads tight mabey one is off or broken. Also make sure you use that silicone backing stuff when you change your break pads.

Clicking noise when brake is applied

sounds like what is happening is one of your wheel speed sensors is dropping out when you slow down and this is triggering abs unit. it would not cut abs light on because system thinks one wheel is locking up just like when you are on ice. need to read data while driving and see what is going on when it activates.
