Clicking noise in the front

I just purchased a 05 Jeep Liberty and I now hear a clicking/tapping sound coming from I think the front right. It goes away when I apply the brakes. I just had a complete brake job done to the vehicle.

    i have the same problem coming from an 05 liberty. the clicking sound is coming from the front left tire.. clicks louder when turning left and goes away when applying the brakes. wondering if its just the sign of needing new brakes?

I hear a dragging clicking sound when I brake from the rear of the jeep. Recently, I replaced the rear and back brakes and still hear the noise.

you need to preform an inspection, you may have something improperly installed, or there maybe other realted issues , you may have a cracked break drum and or rotor...

Jeep Liberty Clicking Noise

This could be one of a few things, check the seals on your cv boots, If a cv joint has grit inside it can create this problematic sound you have listed here, If the sound is emminating from the cv joint(s) then the chances are that you will need replacement cv joints, these are mid priced But always purchase the best that you can afford if you are prepared to do the job yourself, a haynes manual will prove to be invaluable even for thee most mediocre home mechanic, if you are having a garage do the work then don't buy anything as will not fit parts that they have not sourced because if the part fails & you were seriously injured or worse you could sue them for negligence, if its not the cv boots then then it could be the wheel bearings & these could also be done at home, another thing to check is the fan, sounds strange but I have known cases where some thing (s) have got stuck to the blades of the fans & caused the sound you are explaining, Get A Haynes Manual, it is well worth the initial outlay of under 2o quid & if you do the work yourself It will pay for itself in the first couple of jobs, & nothing beats the achievement of working on your own vehicle & solving it's problems - with a little help from us!!

It is probably brake pad pulsation due to worn rotors (the thickness is less then it is required). Also check brake caliper assembly.
Good Luck
