Clicking from front wheel

Hi all.

Have noticed this clicking noise coming from my drivers side front wheel and has started to get worse.

It only seems to do it at slow speed and more so when turning corners.

Has anyone got any ideas?

Cheers

Alex

Have you checked the pads? or a loose wheel weight? the wheel weight might sound silly but i've seen it before.

this happned to me too it was a loose wheel , as above stated sort it quick with a wratchet dont just swing out of the wheel as the weight of the car will make the nuts seem tight all the best

I had a similar noise the other day. Naturally started thinking the worst but ended up being a stone lodged in the tire tread. Worth checking.

Maybe the Wheel bearing then that only breaks down under load.
