    Injectors will make a clicking noise as will the N80 valve on the charcoal filter...

    ive sussed the clicking on the charcoal filter, is that supposed to click or does it mean it needs replacing? the ther clicking comes from the fuel rail and is very loud can hear it even when the bonnets shut? does something need replacing or is it normal as its never made that noise before

    thanks

    Charcoal canister is supposed to click so thats fine... not sure on the fuel rail... injectors can be quite noisy but if you are hearing it with the bonnet shut then its not something I have come across personally...

    Have you changed anything recently? spec of mods to the car?
