Question about 1998 Mazda Protege
The problem doesn't seem to happen when I turn. For example, when I approach a stop sign, and begin to slow down, I hear the ''knock''. It slows down with the speed of the car, and only when I apply the brakes. Someone suggested maybe it's a CV joint, but since it doesn't only happen when I turn I think it's something else. Is there anything I can look for as far as a visual inspection before I go to a mechanic? I don't know much about cars, but if it's a fix that's not a huge deal I can usually attempt it. Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks guys!
This is a matter of knowing a little bit about your car, maybe a cv joint but I will gamble a little on the brake pads, when you apply the brakes they move inside the caliper and thats the noise you hear, try it on reverse, if it does the same thing check your blake pads.
