    Monotonous ticking noise

    I've got a really loud monotonous ticking noise coming from the airbox area of the engine. I've isolated it to the carbon filter solenoid! Is it supposed to tick or does it need replacing?

    They do tick even when working, although its not usual to be able to hear it THAT noticably.

    Assuming you've no fault codes and theres no funny idle or similar then i'd just ignore it!
