Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Kia Sorento, I noticed a clicking noise coming from drivers side front tire area. What may this be? Also when I brake at high speed coming to slow down it vibrates ? Help.. Can this be an easy fix and approx. how much. Thanks Tami

It probably is an easy fix. I suspect you have a stone or a nail or piece of metal stuck in your tire. Turn the wheel to the left and park, inspect the top of the tire. Then roll the car a little more to inspect all the way round to find the culprit. If it's a stone, flick it out, if it's a nail, don't remove it, you will loose air fast. Have a tire shop repair or replace your tire.
