Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Car is making rattling sounds, when ever i hit bumps or something in
the road. ( Only the front driver side makes the rattling). It makes this
sound at any speed. Also whenever i brake now it starts to make a clicking
sound. It will sometimes make the clicking sound even when i don't brake.

Need help.

I would get it up on a rack and check out the front end. Something is worn and loose.

also check the strut mount at the top.


Thanks for response's, i figured it out. It turn's out that the harness that house's the brake pad's was missing two bolts. ( the two bolts that hold it on lol ). I changed the caliper slider pins and got new bolts and the rattling went away and so did the noise when i drive and hit bumps. Thank you everybody.
