2008 Suzuki Grand Vitara Q&A

2008 Suzuki Grand Vitara Question: Slapping sound when applying brakes. What could cause this?

Recently installed new front brake pads. Now after driving a few miles, when applying brakes, there is a "slapping" type of sound. Noise seems to come from driver side front wheel area. What is the cause? -
Answer 1
Couple of possibles. The rotor is warped and needs replaced. A brake caliper mounting bracket bolt is coming loose (if you removed it) or the brakeware clips are damaged or missing. Good luck!!! -
