I have an Outback with about 145,000 miles on it, and I'm getting some of the classic sounds associated with worn CV joints. However, I'm also getting a sound that I haven't read anything about. When I get into the car to start it, I often hear one click that sounds like a CV joint when I press the brake pedal before turning the key. Can depressing the brake pedal while motionless cause a click in a CV joint?

Thanks for the help. This board is great.

that, in my opinion, is the brake lockout switch for the shifter, you have a auto tranny right? it makes it so you can't put it in gear without your foot on the brake first
