Right wheel clicking after very hard braking


#1

I have a 2000 corolla ce with 51k miles I bought recently.

While going to work this morning, I had to hard brake from 50mph. The car slid several feet but came to a safe stop.

Now when I’m driving, my right wheel is clicking…like a light clicking noise. Could hard braking have damaged the wheel bearing or cv joint?

You need to inspect the brake to be certain that nothing is damaged. It may be as simple as an anti rattle spring missing which isn’t critical, but it might be a cracked rotor or a pad separating from the backing plate.
