If the clicking is still there Fisker has a fix for that replacing the lug nuts with a new style coated lug nut . If you can't purchase the new style lugs nuts you can remove the front wheels a d place a small amount of anti sieze compound between the rotor hat and rim .

Front Wheel Clicking Noise - Service Bulletin

Cleaning procedure will mostly solve the issue, even without new coated lug nuts. Anti-sieze is not recommended. If you have a responsive dealer they can order new lug nuts from FA Anaheim. See attached pics.

Funny Fisker recommended Anti Seize before the lug nuts came out .Makes me wonder why then did they produce the lug nuts if just cleaning worked . Only thing we saw in the field that worked was new lug nuts . Just cleaning isn't going to fix the clicking noise but what do I know I only was told to replace all the lug nuts on customer cars that had clicking noises . At $120.00 a car to replace one more well thought design and repair

cleaning the surface was a short term fix until the lug nuts were available. Lug nuts were an interm fix for the 1 piece rotor. 1 piece rotor had its own issues that were trying to be worked out when the bottom fell out from under
