But then the frequency should be related to the speed. Extremely annoying not to be able to locate the sound, as I must be driving to provoce it. My father is a very good mechanic, but the sound is pitched too high, so he can't hear it.. (Old man, and all that stuff )

Re: Clicking Sound

Sorry, misread your post - odd one, depending on where the sound is coming from could be the rev-counter? fuel pump? brake disc dust cover...............?

Re: Clicking Sound

I had that same clicking sound i think, when driving to Slovakia it started in Austria as the Temperature dropped to around -5 and came and went throughout my stay, it totally went by the time i got back to the UK, i only ever heard it once before last year. i thought it may have been a tappet getting a little stuck but it's totally gone now and i'm sure that it would show signs of it happening again over the last 3 months but nothing.........

It sounded like it was coming from behind the dashboard on the passenger side and it was a constant clicking only when moving

Sound familiar! Haven't noticed the noise the last couple of days, maybe that's because of the temperature. I will check for it again next time I take her for a spin.

LRB: Rev counter and fuel pump is out of the question. Could be the dust cover, but the sound isn't metallic, it's just clicking.

Thanks for the tips!

Re: Clicking Sound

Lately i too seem to have developed a clicking sound.

It only intermitant, but i think its a relay sticking, seems to only be there when i first start up and when acelerating. havent really had a look, but will do soon.

Sound seems to be down by the passenger footwell or behind the doorpanel.

Could this be your same problem.

Re: Clicking Sound

I am fairly sure that if its coming from the dash area or sounds like its under the bonnet it will be the wiper relay that is under the cover between the window and the bonnet, I know that is the issue I have.

I also noticed a clicking sound in the cabin at low speeds but tracked it down to the fuel pump.

Re: Clicking Sound

Τry removing the fuses one at a time and see at which the sound stops.That will give you something to start.

Re: Clicking Sound

LRB went to fiat today to pick up relay they ordered me a relay that goes beside the fuses so dont order that part, while i was there got them to go on the forum page i showed him your photographs of the relay , and he tells me it comes complete with the linkage even though it looks like a seperate part and inc vat they want £215 , If there is a number on the magneti marrelli part there is a chance we can order it direct from them.

I think I may live with clicking for a bit longer.....

Re: Clicking Sound

OK, re my last post on this topic - I no longer have to put up with the clicking - its gone!!!!!!

But so too has the use of my wipers!, middle of a snow storm on Saturday the clicking sounds stopped, then the wipers stopped - then the cabin was filled with the smell of melting plastic

I have not checked the relay yet 'cos its too cold and I have flu but I think I know the prognosis!

Re: Clicking Sound

Checked the relay and although the wipers have stopped working it appears that the wiper motor has burnt itself out.

A quick warning to everyone, if you get the clicking noise don't ignore it - the motors are cloaked in a thick plastic 'bag' type affair, if they get hot they could melt and ignite the plastic!
