    Default Ticking noise with clutch engaged

    Guys, just started 2 days ago....... Ticking noise, only apparent when it's a very quiet road or with the window down passing a wall or parked cars.
    Defo started 2 days ago!

    Basically it only happens when the clutch is engaged AND it's in a gear (not in neutral), it doesn't seem to be speed or gear dependant and doesn't seem to change which engine speed.... But it is load dependant, so no load on the engine = less noise.

    The car is due it's cambelt and service, its been delayed by a month or so due to it going in for the accident repairs (im getting it booked in soon), and the clutch has maybe another 5'000-10'000 careful miles left (estimated).

    Im concerned it could be the cambelt tensioner (as these can get noisey under load when they near the end of life).

    Any other idea's?

    No the damage was very minor, just a dented front wing and some light scratches :/

    Ahhhhhh ok this is getting worse and worse, today lots of noise under load at speed (60mph+), stops when you dip the clutch.

    Come on guys someone must have seen this before :/
