    Hey everyone, have a 1999 Ford F250 Light Duty truck. When at a stop sign and you start to drive off, i hear a clicking noise. Only happens from 0-25mph. Then you don't really hear it anymore. Sounds like it is coming from the front left side wheel. Not sure what it is??? Could it have to deal with the wheel, brakes, etc... Was wondeirng if anyone had anything similiar problem or if anyone has any suggestions on what to and go about checking it out? Thanks

    Sounds like a front brake pad.. Usually no big deal. Jack up that wheel and rotate it by hand and listen for the noise. Go from there.

    The easiest thing that it could be would be a piece of rock, gravel, nail or screw stuck in the tire or between the tread. That is where I would check first, if not that then do like it was said already jack it up and spin it a bit and see if you hear anything.

    They have circle hub caps that go over the nuts. Then they are steel rims.

    Take it off, give it a drive. Lots of cheap parts in those as I have a truck with them!
