    Hi guys, 2010 prius started to do something weird..While braking a metallic click is present, front drivers side.
    Can feel it under my left foot on the floor. Just one click. Any ideas?

    brake pad retaining Clips? Sometimes they get a bit of space in them and I have heard them click before upon breaking. Annoying at the most but not much more than that. Still, you may need to have it checked out regardless of what theories may get bandied about here on PC.

    Yeah, will check whether the caliper or pads ain´t loosen or worn, but i´ve read ´bout transaxles and bit scared because i´m driving a third class roads with bumps and holes...Specially you can feel it physically like some road toad is knocking from beneath.
