Hello, The clicking sound can be caused by warped front rotors. To test to confirm this, make a sharp brake from a higher speed, such as 45mph. If the car shakes violently, it is most likely warped rotors. Best of luck! CarGrrl

I agree take it in... Generally a 'click' isn't a warped rotor that's generally more of a pulsing groan... A 'click' makes me think something is loose or there is a hairline crack. In any situation take it in...

may be because of the wheels must stay long in the water .so that sound may occurs.. [url=http://www.trafficschools123.com/]Traffic School[/url]

First off, they are BRAKES, not breaks... Piston is sticking the popping out hard.? Lube parts and piston.
