I have a 2006 Vauxhall Astra automatic which was making a wearing sound around left front wheel. I had both front brake pads plus discs replaced. Now when my car is in park with the engine running, I press the brake pedal on & off and there is now a clicking noise which seems to be coming from the gear box area......any ideas please?
In most cars with automatic transmission, if not all, it is normal to hear a "clicking" sound from underneath the gear selector.
Pressing the brake pedal activates the brake switch, which disengages the park lock solenoid to allow the selector to move out of P. The "click" sound is emitted when the parking lock is released.
