Are they new pads? it could also be the pads dragging a bit and moving in the carrier.

When were they last serviced?

There could be various causes of the front brake clicking sound.

The clicking could be because the brake pads are sticking on the brake pad pin (and consequently the disc) and not moving back from the disc after you relax braking pressure (as Colgster said).

Try cleaning the pad pins and then lubing them with a thin smear of silicone grease - this will allow the brake pads to move smoothly along the pin and not get momentarily stuck up against the disc (be careful when using grease on brake components - don't use too much and don't get any on your discs! :D )

If this does not work then it could be due to a sticking brake piston - which is usually a sign that it's time for some brake servicing and fitting new piston seals etc.

It could be due to worn wheel bearings or warped discs.
