Clicking brake

I bought this car ‘as is’ a few months ago. I have had new brake rotors and pads installed, as well as, a front wheel alignment performed. The car (steering wheel) would shake moderately while idling, either in drive, neutral or park before and after the brake work. Today I discovered the shaking has ceased but now there is a substantial clicking noise when I brake which seems to be coming from the front left side of the car. Any thoughts?

Had this fixed today… it was the caliper that had failed.

Thanks for letting us know how it turned out.

Happy motoring and do it safely.
