Why is my car making a ticking sound when accelerating?

Asked by Dec 05, 2015 at 12:20 PM about the 2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 1.8T Turbo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I'm driving my car it makes a
ticking sound that gets faster as I
accelerate. Once I put on my brakes
it stops. The sound seems to be
coming from the front right side.
Thank you for the help!

Have the front end inspected, checked out for wheel bearings, breaks, CV joints, etc.

CV joints would be my guess.
