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

If you don't touch the brakes when duplicating the problem, how could it be the pads? Mine(2013) had this same problem. When driving at slow speeds, any time I pressed or released the accelerator I would hear the "click"(I drive in "L" exclusively). I tried tightening the axle nut and this did nothing. The dealer replaced the driver's side axle under warranty and this corrected the problem.
