    Default Ticking noise when revving

    Get a strange ticking noise when I rev, coming from the dashboard it seems, goes with the rev count, faster ticking higher revs, slower ticking lower revs, any ideas?

    could be a pulley/belt rubbing catching = open the bonnet and get someone else to rev the car and you have a look/listen whilst there doing it -remember saftey first whilst doing it

    If your 100% certain it's inside as opposed to under the bonnet, then:
    I doubt these have mechanical RPM counters, so my guess is maybe a voltage regulator that controls some sort of mechanical device behind the dash (fans or similar), may have gone. This would mean RPM increasing the voltage supply to and possibly speed of the device.

    Or it could just be a loose part or component that becomes resonant through vibration from the engine.
