small stone or strange object in brake pads/discs ??

Recommended Posts


Yesterday I was having fun on some country roads, there was gravel and on the way back home I noticed a "clic clic clic" sound, specially noticeable when braking (the higher the speed the higher it sounds), it is just on the right front wheel, I can't see any scratches on the outer side of the disc, so It might be on the inside, any hits of what it could be??

Here there's a video in which besides the normal sound of the pad rubbing the disc you can also hear the "clic clic clic"

Thank you

Even just reversing sometimes does it. 

Normal reversing like to get out of a parking hasn't worked out , I will try a place when I can get more speed on reverse and brake.

Next step is to take the wheel out and inspect as @Kristof Thys suggests 

Last resort....take it to the workshop 


The sound has been there now maybe for 30 miles.

I've just removed the brake pads, span the wheel and there's no sound, I put the brake pads back again and the sound is there again, so I guess is related to the brake pads ... (the disk is ok, not bent, not scratched and there's no steering wheel vibrations) so I will wait as I expect it to go away by itself

I've done a routine odb2 scan and this code came up "Chassis C22C1" not sure if this is related to the sound, so me removing the brake pads or something else, there's no light on the dash (I haven't been able to find anything on the internet) any idea???
