I just have the car listed above le. It has a rebuilt title. After purchase, I changed the entire brake system, changed the transmission pan, gasket and bracket (because the transmission oil was leaking). A new transmission oil was out it in. I also had the alignment done.
After these repairs, I began noticing a clicking sound when driving at the rear of the driver side. I took the car for a courtesy check at Firestone and they said everything looks good with the car.

Please what can be wrong? Because I noticed the sound after the repairs were done.

This is my first car and I really want to maintain it to the best I can.

Thanks.

Would it be possible to shoot a video recording the sound? There are many things that could cause sounds and hearing them can make it easier. If you make a video, start at one side of the car and then move to the other or shoot one for each side please. As for the clicking, if you drive along a wall or similar with the window down can you hear it then as well, or just inside the car? Do you notice any pattern to it, like it goes away if you touch the brakes, or it gets louder if you turn or gets faster or slower depending on speed?
As for things to check, if you can get the rear of the car in the air, check the tires for screws, rocks or other embedded items. I had one a few weeks ago where the owner heard clicking and when we looked it had a large bolt that had went through the tire.
