Ticking behind the dash

has anyone heard a very faint ticking, clicking noise behind the dash, driver side, kind of behind the steering wheel?
was like an electronic switch, come "zapping", "ticking"......

Look, Im doing my best here

anyone heard anything like this - very faint

Not yet. Touch wood.

Better take it to your dealer.

Hey Juicer,

I noticed a clicking sound behind my dash and I realized it was my navigation dvd. When I removed the dvd, the clicking stopped. Obviously, that's not much of a fix because I want to use the navigation system! For whatever reason, the clicking seems to have stopped. I'm not sure if this is the same clicking that you're experiencing. Good luck.

I have this on mine but not behind the steering wheel because mine is on the opposite side (right hand drive in UK). I think it may be related the Air Con condensor/motor as it does appear to go away when the cooling requirement is less.
