Default club car clicking from motor when running

May be that the sliders in the brakes are sticking.

It's hard to tell without actually hearing the noise. It could be an internal issue within the differential, but a motor issue is more likely. Motor brushes often tend to make noise similar to what you describe when they get worn.

What year is the vehicle?

Ahhh. The guide ring noise. Very common. They're cheap and not very hard to install.

If you have wheels similar to these with a removable center section it may be your problem. They were loose on my cart and it took a long time to find. Going slow up the driveway you could hear a little tink,tink,tink. Driving at normal speed centrifugal force would hold them in place and they were quite. To check grab center and see if there is any motion.
