The persons that have referred to the rotor are talking about the brake totor. You can find one online for <$40. I would suggest replacing both front rotors and pads together. If the brake rotors have never been replaced, they are due for it and are going to be prone to cracking as they are to thin to dissipate heat.
Also, examine pad retention springs when replacing rotors as I have seen them installed wrong and break.
I say this because a crack large enough to make a clicking noise would be big enough that the rotor would break in half. Definately look into it ASAP. If you can't find a parts supplier through this site. Go to TheFind. Com.
You can easily find a pair of good quality rotors and pads to do both front brakes for $150. Maybe even the rears for a little more.
