I have a 1991 Honda Accord DX. Recently I changed the front brake pads and
after that the front driver's side tire is making a clanging noise (like
hitting two pieces of metal together).
The noise happens when I go over a bump or if I kick the tire. I've taken
the wheel off and there are no loose parts and I cant tell what is hitting
to make the clang noise.
I've had a mechanic turn the rotors and check the entire suspension and he
save everything looks in order. The car drives perfect and stops perfect,
the only thing is that clang noise. However I'm worried it will turn into
Last night I took the tire off and if I smack the brake calliper I get the
clang. I held the tie-rod still and smacked it and still get the noise. I
then placed my hand on the bottom calliper bold and pulled outward with a
little pressure and smacked the calliper and no noise. If I let go of the
calliper the noise came back. I didnt put that much pressure when I held it
and pulled it forward - it didnt even feel like it moved at all.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what it could be? It's driving me nuts.
Maybe the calliper is going out and needs replaced?
Thanks so much in advanced.
