I have a clicking kind of noise coming from my passenger side wheel area. The frequency of the noise will increase as I speed up.

Anyone have any idea what this could be?

I drive a 2010 Fiesta Titanium with a Zetec S body kit.

Have something to contribute?

Probably a good idea to get the bearings checked out.

Sounds like a bearing. Better getting it checked out sooner rather than later. I had the same and one day I was on my way down to England and my steering suddenly started going all over the place. Pulled up and phoned RAC and right enough the clicking Boise I'd been hearing was one of my bearings. RAC bloke reckoned if I'd got to the motorway the wheel wouldve ended up flying off ripping god knows what else off with it

I'm going to get it looked at tomorrow (and hopefully fixed), will it still be safe enough to drive to and from work until tomorrow?

It's not really advisable to drive , without knowing the full details of what the problem is , you could of course take it really steady if its a short journey.

a worn cv joint will cause clicking like you describe

The noise does not stop when breaking nor does it matter if I'm turning or not, even when driving in a straight line it happens.

It sounds sort of like if you ran a stick along a metal fence, if that makes sense?

If it is a bearing is it easily fixed? And would you be able to get a new bearing over the weekend? Or would it have to be ordered from ford?

if it is indeed a bearing, its certainly dangerous to drive in my opinion. a bit of wear in a bearing will produce a low grumbling noise and will progressively get worse.
for it to be clicking (which i have never come across yet) then something must be broken inside it, whether it be one of the rollers or the cage

bearings can be bought from any motor factors but it will require someone with a press to fit. avoid cheap bearings, they probably wont last long

Ford parts are generally readily available and most garages should be able to get one fairly quickly for you. Normally costs about £100 or so to fix

I believe the genuine front bearing for the mk7 is around £50
