under what circumstances do you hear the clicking?
All the time. It sounds like its coming from the boot but if I open the boot when the engine is running, you cant here it. Which makes me think it might have something to do with a relay or switch to do with the hood's motor?
Why do you need the vin number?
Ok. No probs. Car been in garage (some nice little so'n'so ran their key all down the passenger side a few weeks back). Collecting resprayed car tomorrow and will check vin and get back to you. Thanks.
