    Front Passenger clicking/tapping sound.

    Hey guys,
    02 wrx, stock, 78k.
    I have been hearing a clicking/tapping noise coming from the front passenger side of my vehicle while driving. It seems to be some what related to braking but I can't really pin point what/where it is. It happens when slowing down and taking off and usually happens when I step on the brakes or shortly after I release the brake pedal....but not always. Sometimes it just happens out of nowhere. Ive done some research and have determined that it could possibly be the caliper or the wheel bearing.
    Any Thoughts?

    Yes, or the axle. Check for debris stuck somewhere, check the wheel bearings, and check for torn axle boots.
    The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms, 1929
