Title: Clicking from passenger wheel arch when ignition off
Post by: Dave Hathaway on July 27, 2018, 05:03:45 AM
Hi, I am getting a loud clicking noise from the front passenger wheel arch when the car is parked and ignition off. Sounds maybe like an electrical switch is turning off/on? Doesnít happen all the time, no obvious pattern to noise!

Any ideas? Doesnít sound like itís coming from the engine bag, more behind the wheel arch?

Very strange!

Any thoughts welcome, supposed to be driving to France tomorrow!

Yes that is very strange only things I can think of are the metal pipes to rear heater or run on pump? Cannot think of anything else that could cause something like that?!

Or expansion bottle making a noise if it is releasing pressure due to a pressurising cooling system?

Hmm, a bit more digging around tíinterweb and I was leaning towards it being the relay for the back-up alarm sounder? Thatís the only thing I could find thatís located there?

ABS pump sounds more problematic!!!
