There is some rubbish out there that are dimensionally poorly made. These have excessive movement and can cause symptoms you describe.

Be careful taking the vehicle to the mechanic. If whatever is broken or loose gives way completely you may have seriously reduced braking ability. Although it identified the area of the problem, your little off-road jaunt was probably ill-advised in a vehicle with a suspected fault, especially when you'd already booked in to the mechanic.

Pedders? That will be expensive. I bet that they'll find something wrong with the brakes.
