    Could anyone tell me what the black round part (small jug size) between the washer bottle and coolant bottle is? Their are 2 pipes coming out the top of it,1 going to the induction system,also a wiring block connector. A ticking noise is coming from the top of this part when the engine is warm,is this normal?

    Cheers all

    The Jap car specialists I went to for a rolling road last weekend were perplexed wher the ticking was coming from...
    I didn't tell them because they looked like they were having so much fun checking my car over for faults (Det?) and subsequently giving it a clean bill of health!
