Default Clicking noise when I hit brake, need help

I need help if someone ever experienced the clicking noise when you hit the brake, when I drive slow and start hit the brake I heard clicking (just one click, everytime I hit brake) noise that I can hear inside the car. The sound came from the front passenger side wheels, but I noticed there's nothing leaking or torn in front axles, Is it the wheel bearings goes bad that made the sound or something else? Thanks for your help.

Default See my post down below....

You may have a brake pad come loose from the backing plate and this will give you a click.

have you replaced the pads recently?
did you use aftermarket pads?
we see this type of sounds a lot and usually is the pads been shorter than the original parts

Have you checked all the suspension bushings? I just had my car in with roughly the same noise, only at slow speed, and they replaced to 2 bushings and the noise is completely gone.

Not a cheap fix FYI.

I had a similar click in my car, and I checked everythin, but all was OK, untill one day, brake light came on the cluster, so I checked the brake fluid and the level was low. I refilled it, and since that day I never heard that click anymore. try this
