Exclamation Clicking noise from drivers side wheel.

Finally picked up my car after a month!!

Had some damage to bumpers and a couple light scratches applied to body work by the dealer car wash. After a further wash, polish, 2 visits to the body shop I could pick it up.. I was more excited than first buying it!

Noticed on the drive back a noise with my windows down cruising on A roads. Managed to get this picked up on video. Same again this morning.

My thoughts are the discs have warped or the pads arenít seated correctly, only time I had something similar was on a previous hatchback upgrading brakes to 320mm drilled discs. First pair would make the same noise both front sides, once replaced nothing happened.

Thereís no reason to think of that brakes were adjusted, removed and put together again, by either my self or the dealership.

Increasing speed increases the frequency. Happens on and off throttle. No noticeable vibration on steering wheel (will test this out again).

Is it possible to be the pads/disc? I have done a quick swoop of the tyre tread rotation the wheel both sides but couldnít mind any pebbles or stones.

Hereís a video: " width="800" height="450" frameborder="0">

Ideally want to look into this my self as I donít want a number of visits again with long wait times.

Can't play the video for some reason but are you sure it's not a stone in the tyre tread ?
Brake discs don't just warp so if it was ok before the body shop visit it's likely something simple like that

Will try get the wheels off this weekend, but from moving the car and turning the wheels either direction there were no stones found.

Iíll get the torque wrench out tomorrow and double check all bolts are sitting at ~140Nm. Brake backing plates might be worth an inspection..
