Update on "Clicking" in front wheels, need advice

A few weeks ago I noticed the "clicking" noise in the front drivers side wheel area that others have reported on this thread.

According to the previous threads most, if not all, of the people reporting this have found it to be a loose or faulty shaft axel wing nut and washer. Others have found this needs to be tightened or replaced.

I took my car into the dealer and they said the shaft is fine but that the brake pads are loose and should be replaced.

They quoted me $421 to replace the brake pads and $122 to do a brake flush.

What should I do?

It was my understanding brake pads do not need to be touched on the volt for a very, very long time.

Please let me know

<snip>Funny thing is I have noticed on occassion my brakses though not on seem stuck to the rotor and brake free from say after driving in rain or such noting I drive the car usually once a day. But from last park to next drive seems to be enough to have it seems stuck purely by not freely staring to backout my garage always where its parked. <snip>
This happens to me also after a rain and sitting in the garage overnight. Even though the rotors had the FNC factory treatment, miles and miles of use has caused a wearing down of the outer surface and allowed the "sticking" of the pads after a least, that's my theory. I don't think that there is any need to worry about that.
