Single loud click or pop when going over bump in reverse with wheel turned

Post by Thenextman »

Hi All,

Had my struts replaced last week with a set of aftermarket, unity brand strut assemblies (full assembly).

The past two days, when reversing out of the lot at work, I'll hear and feel a click or pop as my driver side tire comes over the curb with wheels turned about 50 percent to the right. I can feel this in my left foot if it is resting on the wheel well.

It's happened three out of five times now at that exact spot, generally when car is cold. Do not feel or hear it for the rest of the trip generally or when pulling into other places. It's a single click.

Any idea what this might be? The car is a 2004 XC70 with 208k km on it.

Thanks,

Paul

This is caused by the pads falling off the shoe and jamming between the shoe and rotor. Try to find replacement pads that are riveted on. OEM ones are glued on and fail over time. Mine shredded the rotor and replacement was expensive.

Hey engineer - can you provide some clarity on this? (Forgive me, I don't know much about cars) is this a drum brake problem? Parking brake? Do you mean to say that my brake pads are delaminating from the calipers? How long do I have before this destroys my car? Could it be something else?

Braking feels fine, and this only happens when the car has been sitting in sub zero temperature for a while.

Thanks!
