    It could be many things, unfortunately and without hearing the noise first hand or being able to do some basic diagnostic tests or be able to drive the car, its hard to say what the source of the noise may be.It could be a brake pad sensor contacting the brake disc, it could be a bad CV joint (if it is clicking sound that increases with intensity with speed at which you take a sharp turn. At any rate get it checked out in case it is serious or could result in something else wearing out.
