Default Strange Clicking Noise From Rear of Car

I have a B5, 1999 A4 2.8L Quattro with Tiptronic. Tonight driving my brother home we both noticed that if I accelerated hard from a stop there was a very noticeable "click click click" noise that happend in rapid succession. You know when you were a kid and you'd put a baseball card in your bike wheels? Same kind of noise, only it's coming from my expensive import German automobile. It was raining heavily tonight here in Portland, it hasn't made this noise before, and it would only do it when I accelerated hard, if I just gently rolled from a stop like I normally do in traffic, there is no noise.

Any ideas?

i will guess and say that its a wheel bearing. does it sound like if you take a stick or whatever and hit the spokes of a bike wheel while its turning? you know? clik clik clik clik clik ..

the reason i know this is because my front left wheel has a bad bearing. makes the same sound.

my B6 quattro does the same, almost everytime I accelerate from stop. Most of the time after I start the engine, after driving few minutes it doesn`t make that sound even I`m stopping again and accelerating


I`m hearing that sound once or twice ( clank clank and that`s all. I don`t know from where is that sound coming from but I think somewhere from the center of the rear axle.

It isn't a clank clank it a click click click that happens in really rapid sequence, and it makes the noise of the car is warm or not.

How long can I drive on it with this problem? I ask because I need it through, say, the weekend then I can have it taken to a shop.

Except for driving quickly through a couple of inch-deep puddles to make a splash, no, I haven't been hitting anything with my car. I baby her.
