Question about 2003 Subaru Forester
When I apply the brakes the left front corner of my car clunks. It sounds and feels like I have a flat tire, but I don't. I just paid a bunch of money to fix the heat shield because the dealership claimed that was the problem, but just drove it home and the sound is still there.
I would get after the dealership for false diagnosis. You paid money to have it fixed and they didn't fix the problem. Sounds like a BAR violation to me. ( Bureau of Automotive Repair )
The most common problem with what your describing is:
1. Loose or bad strut, suspension parts.
2. Loose brake caliper or not properly seated brake rotor.
Those are the most common things I see in my shop with that type of problem. I wouldn't let the dealership get away with this.
