Got F-150 with “strange noise from the front” complaint. Took for a test drive and couldn’t hear anything wrong. Put the truck on the hoist and wow! Found brake caliper secured with cable tie:
Customer’s “buddy” was doing a brake job for him just recently and looks like got caliper bolt broken (fracture spot has not even got corroded yet). Secured with cable tie instead and good to go, eh?
Surprisingly enough this was not a source of noise that customer was concerned about.
