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.

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 :s

I should probably mention that they aren't titanium bolts. The clicking noise is solved by two things. The cleaning of the mating surface between the wheels and the rotor, as well as replacing the lug nuts with teflon coated lug nuts.
