    when the bonnets up and engine running, i can hear a ticking sound, one sounds like its in the rocker head :/ any ideas on this? common, be worried?

    the second one is in a part in the side of the bay, in the picture below its the black box between the coolant and the window wash fluid, next to the power steering res, if you put a finger on it you can feel the tick...what even is this element?

    Thanks

    The black box is the charcoal cannister and is designed to tick

    +1 on that, the first just sounds like a noisy tappet, if it gets any worse then start looking at other things it could be with a stethoscope.
