    Hi,

    I have a 2004 2.0TDi and just wondering if anyone else has heard noises coming from the dashboard after you turn the engine off?? It is a clicking noise, every half second or so. I have to turn the engine on and off again for it to stop...???

    Anyone heard the same and know what to do about it??

    Cheers

    It's the vents all closing off to stop big gusts of wind etc setting off the alarm (like it does on VW's which don't have this feature).

    Same noises can be reproduced when you use the different vent buttons on the climate control when it opens and closes different airflow paths.
