Long time no posting! In my case that's a good thing as it's only when I have a problem usually!

I have a ticking noise coming from the area around the offside front. It is there all the time -- when the car is parked, moving, on or off. It is ticking about once every two or three seconds.

Before I spend hours trying to locate it, can anyone suggest what it might be (and a solution if possible!)

Thanks
Lyndon

Not that I am aware of. I have had the car for three years and as far as I am aware it is standard spec
