Keeps clicking during running

On starting Fiat 500L I keep getting a constant clicking as if itís coming from the starter motor or alternator...
It starts ok

Any ideas?

Re: Keeps clicking during running

Is it a diesel?

The starter pinion might be worn... it tends to come to rest in the same place, due to the compression of the engine, so that the initial turning torque always goes through the same few teeth. If one or two of the teeth have become cracked/worn then as they pass over the flywheel, they'll tick.

If the noise comes and goes, then it's not that. It would be there all the time the engine is running.
