    could be a c/v joint...check for torn boots at axle ends. Part usually runs between $85 and up...see if you can get a complete axle...saves time and is easier to do.

The popping sound is a bad CV joint. The part is not all that expensive, figure on maybe around $100, the labor is the issue! Always is. If you are mechanically inclined you can replace it yourself, no special tools are needed.

Clicking noise front passenger side when making a left turn

Most likely your cv (drive) axle. Check to see if the boot is torn, which lets out most of the grease and lets in debris and water. Replace if so, I recommend buying new (not rebuilt), the price difference isn't much if you shop around. Putting a new boot on isn't going to get rid of the noise.

I had a drained battery every three days and it turned out to be the antenna motor, because the noise come from the back seat but driver side.. Ended up disconnecting the power antenna. Your Accord seems to have a different issue than mine, but I thought I would throw it out for consideration.
