little clicking noise from front right wheel(solved)
 
hi, I noticed that there is a little clicking noise from the front right wheel of my pt, also when I brake or accelerate is become a sort of cilling. I have checked the wheel, driveshaft and disc brake and everything looks ok, what could it be?

I would send it to the dealer under the warranty(the full warranty finish june 5 2009 and the one of the poweplant on april 12 2011) but I have to drive two hour to go there so I would prefer to do it myself if its easy and cheap.

got it solved by the dealer, it was just a loose wheel cap

Have the brake pads been replaced recently?? Had the same noise and it was a bent anti rattle clip. New clip, problem solved!!!:D:D

ok I'll check that when I'll get some time.

oh and I noticed that there is a little lateral slop in the driving shafts, maybe one milimeters, is it normal? also if the trans is in first gear and I turn the wheel by and there is maybe 1/8 of a wheel turn I can turn it, is it normal?

I prefer to ask so I wont drive two hour just to have someone telling me: thats normal

i had that same noise and it is the brake or just the brake pads, i had the same problem but my mechanic just replaced that pads and it was fine after that. i think there is a little metal piece that fits inside where the brake pad is or on the brake itself and sometimes that will rub against or scrape against the rotors so check that out too.

I checked the pads and they are fine, checked also if there is any clip rubbing on the disc and there is any, everything seem at his place and work properly. I am almost asking myself if it could be a sort of sound effect from the little balancing weights when they turn.

Any other idea of what it could be?
