Hello, thank you for writing in. Due to the fact the noises did not appear until the recent brake work was done, it is easy to assume it is related to that repair. Verifying the repair is holding is the first thing you should do. Make sure the pads have not slipped out of place, and that the retaining bolts and screws are tight. If anything is allowed to shift as the brakes are released, you will hear it when releasing them. You also want to make sure the brake fluid is full and bled of any air that may have gotten into the system. If you suspect there is a problem with the brakes, and do not find it yourself, please seek professional help, as this is such a crucial component for vehicle safety. For more help with a safety inspection, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.
