    hi guys,noticed last night theres a weird clicking noise from behind dash,thought it was the cd changer so removed cartridge and it wasnt that, im thinking now is it something to do with the climate control maybe a motor trying to move a heater flap or something?
    anyone else ever come across this?

    Unfortunately the only advice i can give is get used to it.... its one of those tiny gremlins of these cars, i dont think there has been a definitive fix for it... but your right it is to do with the climate control motors,

    Get it read for codes, & I'm sure you'll find a faulty climate control flap motor.
