    WHAT? You don't have one of these? I would run away now, this is the anti self destruct mechanism for your car!

    Sorry, I be bored, I have all this time off work and nothing to do with it now As said above its for the alarm, I assume you dont have an alarm therefore you shouldn't have one of these?

    Yeah i know the feeling, iv got loads of time off and its getting abit too cold and dark to do stuff on the car. Wish i had a nice big indoor garage with a car lift in it

    Yeah i dont have an alarm, i thought it was something to do with that but wasnt sure.

    cheers.

    Have a look at the top of the airbox nearest to the windscreen, this little device (carbon canister valve) maybe the source of your ticking.
