I have an 2002 Hyundai Auto.

My car has the clicking noise under the following situations:

1) rolling in neutral with/without brake applied
2) rolling/decelerating without gas pedal pressed (I guess the same as rolling in neutral) with/without brake applied

The noise is the most noticeable when going at around 20 to 30mph, and would be gone under very low speed <5-10 mph. The weird thing is when I press the gas pedal and the car is accelerating, the noise is gone too.

My mechanics said it is because the wheel cylinder which is noisy. But I don't quite understand why the noise is gone when the car is accelerating. Any clue on that?

The wheel cylenders are on the rear brakes. Is that where the sound is coming from? Also, I have never known them to click.

Does the sound change when turning? Also, since it goes away when you use the brakes, check to make sure your front brake pads are properly installed and the hardware that holds them still is not damaged.

Let me know what you find.
