I have a 2006 Altima which is making a knocking noise at low

Customer Question

I have a 2006 Altima which is making a knocking noise at low speed (15mph) when the brakes are applied. At higher speeds car brakes fine with no knocking noise. The knocking is preceded by what appears to be a humming noise somewhat like a power steering pump which is low on fluid. The pump was check and fluid level is ok. any thoughts

have you had the brakes checked?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Brakes and rotors have been replaced. This issue was present before brakes and rotors were replaced. Replacing did not correct this issue.
