Does the clicking change with turning, or is it constant? Does it get faster with higher speed? You need to think logically and narrow your repair path based on some simple testing here. We can't guess at what it might be without a little more info.

Ok, so you get the sound when you are on the gas, when you come off the gas there is no (or little?) sound in the form of clicking??
Try this, drive the car. Make it make the clicking sound. While driving it with the gas at normal driving position, apply a bit of brakes, until you feel the car slowing down against the engine. If the sound goes away it sounds like your brakes. Probably the pads. If the sound persists, then it most likely is one of your CV joints. I have never heard brakes clicking, but I know CV's do it in a very clicky sounding way.
And yes CV joints can get to the point where they will click on a straight.
Let me ask, were you turning when it started to click? Did you hit the gas and then it started to click? Or were you just going along straight and it started to click?
Again, try to only post in the same Thread and please put questions like this in the right place, like Old Gen's section...
