1998 Contour, clicking noise coming from front wheel on drivers side as I'm driving(it's a consistent click)

With out hearing the noise it is hard to say but it could be a wheel bearing but most of the time a bearing will hum, this could be a bad cv axle or a brake brake hitting the bracket, try to drive the car and hit the brake a little and see if the clicking goes away, if it does then i would say it is in the brakes. if it does not then have the cv axle checked.

98 ford contour 2.5- a loud roar from front drivers side of car

This sounding like an Idler bearing problem, Sounds like the idler bearing that supports your belt is either loose or needs replading. I say this because when you get the RPMs up on the motor the noise should almost disappear?

Back wheel bearings noise

i have a broken down ford contour 1998 i dont know if it will help but when you replace the bearings you have to replace both at the same time or it will end up making the same noise again. go to the parts store, and get TWO bearings. replace them and it should fix the problem.
