Question on Brake Unusual Brake Noise

i just bought this 05 cobalt with 85k on it it runs good and doesnt have any deficiencies from what i can tell so far. i havent got to my new unit and i cant use the motorpool like i did before to work on my ride so i cant really look at it..... nways everytime i press the brake pedal(only when i press the brake pedal) it makes a steady fast clicking noise. it makes it whether im stopped or moving. im thinking that the brakepads need to be reseated or the retaining pin either broke or came lose.. like i said cant look at it yet. anyone have an idea?

sounds like either that or a pad somewhere is shot and the pad holders are scrapping the rotor.. does it happen more or less when they get warmed up?

The cobalt is notoriously bad for brakes I had mine a month and had to get some major work done and I still had the dealer inspection paperwork, I haven't done it yet myself but save yourself the trouble and upgrade the rotors and pad.

i had my rotors turned and bought new pads put on when i bought it.. but it sounds like it could be the issue haha only one more thing to add to the list of corner cutters!

UHe sait it does it wether he's movin or not so I doubt its the pads sounds like it may be an abs issue even if the lights not on it could still be malfunctioning or maybe even a master cylinder problem hard to tell without hearing it
