Spring/Ping Sound When Applying Brakes
My 2013 CVT Crosstrek started to make a sound when I apply the brakes. It sounds like a spring unloading, kind of a ping. As for as the brake system goes, I replaced all pads around 90k miles, currently has 105k. No other work on the brakes other than the recommended checks. To be clear, the sound happens when compressing the brake, not when releasing it.
I did some reading online and will take a look at the return spring for the brake pedal, but otherwise didn't come up with anything the sounded likely.
