Recent observation: Under hard driving/braking conditions I've occasionally noticed a very regular 'tat-tat-tat-tat' sound when braking. Seems to be coming from the driver side front. Hard to recreate, but seems to occur when the brakes are being applied through to after I've taken foot off the pedal. No clunking as if something's physically loose, sound like a mechanical issue.

- Loose pad, only indicated under hard braking?
- Possibly piston or other mechanical part malfunction?

Under normal conditions, no sign of this.

No vibration as in when ABS kicks in. The sounds is machine-like in that it's a tapping. Back in the country next week so I'll get it sorted then.

Kent, Rick, Ramp,

Yes now that I've been back with the car and able to drive - seems like the ABS. Very very subtle as they're almost imperceptible vibration on the brake pedal. And - key point - if it occurs, I shut the car down and restart, the problem isn't there, but will reoccur from time-to-time.

The sound is definitely from the front wheel drivers side. Sound occurs when applying the brake and for 2-4 seconds after removing foot from the pedal.

Will have it checked at FMLI under my friendly warranty.

Thanks for the diagnosis.
