    Default Clicking / Tapping noise - HELP PLEASE

    Hi all i just need a little advice, this problem has only just started in the last two weeks or so, i have a 2004 (54) Vectra gsi, sometimes when i unlock the car i hear a kind of clicking / tapping noise also this noise happens again when i turn the air con off, it almost sounds as if there is something catching in a fan. The noise is consistant every time and have some times noticed it when i have had my bonnet up checking fluids.

    Each time the noise is coming from behind/under the glove box area.

    Any advice would be good as i understand its a big job stripping the dash in order to check these parts

    Just a quick note, a diagnostic check did not high light anything

    Cheers Grant

    What a coincidence! I've just been out to pick the kids up & mine is doing exactly the same, 54 plate GSi, too. The heating/cooling still works fine, just noisy as hell now.

    If it ain't one thing it's another.

    Did you get yours sorted, Grant?

    I had the battery disconnected for a while this weekend while I fitted my towing electrics, connected the thing back up & the clicking is gone. Aircon/heating still works fine so it seems to have fixed itself.
