Knowing nothing about how cars work, the front passenger wheel has started to click (like the sound when kids put a playing card in the spokes of their bikes to make it click) and also it's squeeking like hell. This is driving me mad as it draws a lot of attention to my car (a 97 W202). Would I be right in assuming it's the ball joint?

Any stones trapped in the tyre tread ? This would be the first basic check.

No stones in the tyres at all. I'm having both ball joints replaced on tuesday along with the discs and pads (my mechanic mate has said they'll need changing soon anyway so I may as well get it done now) so i'll get him to strip it down and check it over while he's at it. Thanks for the advice chaps.
