After a while driving i have noticed a slight "ticking noise" which gets worse over time. If i slightly depress the brake pedal is disappears, then comes back after a while.

Abyone any ideas??

Have something to contribute?

below is a quote from the honest john website:

On the 1.6 auto, a sound like a relay clicking on and off repeatedly at idle or light throttle settings (at first thought to be connected with the rough idle) is explained as the Bowden cable connecting the gear shift to the gear box has an alloy junction box situated inside the car under the interior fan unit to provide free play. Re-routing the cable in the engine bay so it is no longer under tension gets rid of the noise.
