Hi Scotty I have a 2016 Scion tC. Every time I would press on the break pedal, I would hear a clicking or some sort of metal shifting noise coming from the front of the car. I was told that my AutoZone brake pads weren’t a good quality brake pad and they were causing this noise so I decided to go with O’Reilly brake pads. Shortly after I installed the brand new pads from O’Reillys, I heard the same familiar sound coming from the front of the car and even when I go in reverse pressing on the break pedal. I took my car to brake check off of I-45 and they told me my brake pads need to be flipped from the left and right to right and left. After that the noise went away for a little bit and then it came back. I then went to the Toyota dealership to buy OEM brake pads for my car end and it is making the same noise. I was the one installing the brake pads but I’ve already known how to install brake pads in the past especially with my car. I had my suspension checked out everything was tight everything was normal I had my brake calipers and my brake rotors checked and was told that they were fine. I am at a loss and I don’t know what could be the problem. My brakes stop fine but the noise is a concern that I don’t want to live with and don’t want to gamble on. If you can give me a solution to the problem over the Internet, that would be great but I would much rather take my car to someone I know is reputable. I’m sure you get a lot of requests from subscribers having their cars looked at by you but I live in the Houston area as well so would it be at all possible to have my car looked at by you. Thank you.

I'd take a serious look at the C-V Joints.

Could be the calibers squeaking as they retract in and out
