Is the clicking noise coming from the bell housing? Chances are high that the clutch has worn out or threw off the lining on the disc. That requires a clutch job. If the noise is coming from thr differential then the ring and pinion are broken. That requires a differential overhaul. HTH

Sounds like the trany will have to be pulled to see what is going on in the clutch department. If there are no visible signs of a problem, then check out the trany Your not hearing the noise from the rear end are you?
