Ticking noise

I've had a "ticking" noise that comes from under the hood when the car is running and the clutch is depressed. The sound goes away once I push the clutch back down, the weird part is that it doesn't always do this, sometimes if I slowly let the clutch out while i'm idling it wont tick, where when I let it out normal, I hear the ticking......I've ALSO got a ticking somewhere in my front wheel(s), it sounds like a stone in my tire because of how the ticking speeds up and slows down with the car, BUT its not coming from my tire. I really need to just throw it up on a hoist and take the front wheels off to see what it might be.

Have you had the clutch TSB done?

I too had a ticking noise that would speed up and slow down with the speed of the car, turns out I had a screw in my tire and had to plug it

Oh, and rompin2.0focus, that avatar is down right scary! LOL

I have the same problem with the "ticking" in the front tire. My front, driverside wheel is doing that! I dont know what it is, I took my tire off and found nothing in the tire. I couldnt find anything wrong with the disk and brake pads either! I dont know what it is if anyone knows for a fact what it is, PM me!
