1998 Honda Civic EX Brake clicking

Asked by Feb 22, 2017 at 09:54 PM about the 1998 Honda Civic EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just purchased this car today and after driving it for about 20 minutes I noticed a "clicking/ticking" sound when braking. Clicking seems to happen at speeds of about 30mph or under and only does it when braking at those speeds. There's also what seems to be a faint squeak following the tick but it's very quiet and almost not noticeable. There is no wheel shaking at all. I was told it had sit about 3 weeks. My car has 198000 miles and an automatic transmission

Sounds like the front bearings may be going and need to be replaced

Just have the front brakes and wheel bearing checked. Doesn't sound real serous at this point.

It seems to be coming from under the passenger seat or rear passenger wheel. I'll definitely get the bearings checked out. I've only noticed the noise in that area. Would a bent dust guard make that noise? I also forgot to mention the abs light isn't on so that's a plus i guess

Could be anything making a clicking sound. Once someone looks at it they should find out what is making the clicking. Dust guard is a possibility if it is bent.
