    Black box between expansion tank and washer tank

    After being out a drive I was letting the car idle to cool the turbo before turning off the ignition,so I popped the bonnet to top up the washer fluid and the black box just above it is making a clicking/knocking noise is this normal or does this need replaced?

    Thanks in advance guys
