    Can you try to be any more specific than that? Does the sound come from the transmission (below you), from the inside, glove box, outside? Anything else?

    Rodgy that....Def not the transmission, its like the left front wheel somewhere? I know its around there. At times it sounds as though it's both the right and the left. Sorry if this sounds really stupid. I'll try to explain: When I'm like waiting at the lights or even just moving from the garage, I'll like slightly move forward and there it is. I dont have to like accelerate hard out, I just take my foot of the throtle a little bit. Also i can be rolling and then put the brakes on and the noise is there. Only when I like accelerate and slow down. Its weired because I thought it would be like the suspension or something, but i go over bumps fine with out any noise. But this accelerating and then stopping-noise is bugging me.

    I accelerate-Click/...and then I Slow down-clicking also, and it's mainly from the Front Left passenger side. (Wheel Bearing? C.V joints) I'm not sure?

    Please help

    it could be just a wire that is loose somewhere. in my friends car when you put the brakes on it does a clicking noise like your blinker is on but its not. take it in somewhere and see if they can find it.

    do you feel the clinking in the pedals or shiftknob? that happened to me and then my clutch went out and subaru ripped a 1600$ hole in my a$$ for a new one.. i also take my car out on a lot of dirt roads.. cause it was built for that hey i dont like drag strips that much, anyway, there was a horrible clunking sound and i couldnt figure out what it was so i asked the guy at the shop to see if he had any idea of what it could be, and sure enough, there was a rock stuck between the backing plate and the rotor might wanna look there

    Thanks for that...

    I forgot to tell you that I had the Clutch done, and that was fine like $1200 later. But all went well, as for noise...All I no is that its below the engine passenger side and yes I do get the odd feel of a thud under my clutch...And Beleive it or not the Prick is now got a oil leak some where. And I can smell the oil burning, must be touching the exhaust or something cause I can see this like mist of air through the top vents.

    This is excellent ! I used the search and it worked ! Anyway I am having the same problem on my 06 wrx , only mine happens when I hit the brakes in reverse . It just started after I put on hawk hps pads . Hopefully when you get yours fixed that'll help me out . Thanks.

    What a coincidence running across this thread. I'm having the same kind of noise at the passenger front wheel, but only when I turn the wheel at very low speeds. That same wheel is squeeking whenever I'm under 40 mph as well. It's a 2004 rex wagon, and I'm having it looked at this Friday.

    Click/clunk

    Yeah so I went andhadit checked out bymymechanicand hedidn't find anything wrong.Nothing on my rotor, pads, axle, calipers, nothing at all. I still heardit alot.Ihadto go and getnew tiresand when they put them on they buffedmybrakes with a wire spindel. This seemsto have helped as ionly hearthenoiseevery once in a while. But youknow what they say... you hear the noise-bad....noisegoes away-worse. bestof luck to you guys.

    If you have the 4 pot calipers at the front, (AKEBONO) they have pins that hold the pads in the caliper, it could just be the pad moving around on these pins, Mine does it when applying the brakes sometimes.
