    I noticed it a little on Saturday, but also heard it again this morning. The car's making a strange clicking sound that appears to be coming from somewhere on the left front of the car. Any idea what could cause this??

    Or go away if you lightly ride the brakes?

    hellcat1 B5 Blue, I noticed it at a roll this morning, I can't remember if I was applying brake or not. I'll have to test it when I leave here in about 20 minutes.

    Look for a small rock stuck in your tread. Check all the tires. Very hard to identify which by sound while moving.

    Also, if that's all it is, I'm going to feel really blonde.

    A screw or nail can make the same noise. Just not so easy to see. Maybe drive in a slow circle in a parking lot with somebody else listening & watching.

    Yeah thats normally what it is, I had that same issue. I couldn't find the rock but it hasn't done it today which makes me think it fell off finally.

    Anybody in your neighbourhood having their roof done, look for a nail or screw in one of the tires, if you get it early it won't have gone through the tire only the tread.
    Don't worry about being Blonde, I married one and most days I'm more Blonde than she is but I never miss the opportunity to let her know she is Blonde and gorgeous.

    Mine clicks when I'm turning to the right hard and going very slow (like in a parking garage). I vaguely recall someone posting about this and they said the tire was rubbing on the plastic in the wheel well.... I'll try and dig it up (for my own benefit)
