Default Clicking noise?

So, my Fisker seems to have developed a "clicking noise". Sounds like its coming from the front right of the car. Seems to get worse when I make a turn, and is even louder in Sport mode. Any one else experience this?

I had this and thought I had tire flop! Mine turned out to be the plastic finned grill above the passenger side exhaust exit pipe was loose a d seemed there was enough flex on turns to make it click, my passenger thought it was the hub center cap, but it was the grill. Good luck, keep us posted, I hope it's something little.

It is a common thing with alloy wheels and Brembro rotors, and for a while Cadillac was replacing wheels because of it, until they figured out the solution at each tire rotation

it's an easy fix: remove the wheel, use a scotch-brite pad and clean the back side of the wheel where it touches the rotor, simple everyday brake cleaner works well. I don't whats going on between the two that causes the noise, the wheel isn't loose and there is no danger of it coming loose, they for some reason like to make a clicking noise (almost like a bad CV joint). It goes a way with a simple cleaning.

I have that noise too, but only when turning sharply. And now, thanks to Nimisys, I know what to ask the dealer to do.

I have the same noise, but it is often very loud. Sigurd, did the wheel cleaning work?

There's a Fisker bulletin to solve this clicking issue. Just take it to your dealer, let them know it clicks while turning, they'll solve it straight away

If there is a clicking sound during tight turns ask your dealer to replace the bolts. Fisker has new titanium bolts that solve this problem. I do hope they are still willing to fix this under warranty
