    Break/suspension problem Mazda5

    I have a 2014 mazda5, 50k miles.
    A few days ago it started making a noise when going over bumps, not every time just sometimes.

    Last night as I was getting home the front passenger break started falling off and will grind and lock up if I try to drive it. When I inspect the break its visibly loose and I can move it.

    What is wrong with it? I'm mechanically capable I just never had to troubleshoot car problems.

    wow, breaks are falling off????? You need to take wheel off and inspect and see what is going on.

    When you said initially noise over bump - on the 12-15 cars, that is sign of shocks. But yours is definitely not shock - if brakes are falling off. When were they changed last night? My brakes lasted me 72K miles on the front
