Sounds like the fuel pump priming and keeping pressure for next start

My 1.8 petrol gives a 2 second sigh type noise after the ignition is turned off, just how I feel after a long drive. :mellow: I haven't got a clue what it is. :wacko:

I'm not worried about my car having a sigh, I wouldn't worry about yours clicking, may be they should get together and form a band. :D

Somebody else on the forum had a car that was humming so between them all it's getting very musical.
Do you remember the focus advert where the musical instruments were made from car parts? Maybe Ford are now making their cars from instruments. ;)

Is this normal not noticed this but after i turn the engine of for about a second after it stops theirs a clicking noise is it meant to do this its a 1.8tdci engine cheers

I noticed this exact same sound a couple of weeks ago, and I also have a 1.8 TDCi. At least I'm not the only one!

What's interesting is that mine makes the noise when I switch the ignition off - even if the engine hasn't been running.

Try it yourself - put the key in and turn to the second click (i.e. so the warning lights on the dashboard come on and the electric windows work) but don't start the engine. Then turn the ignition off, and after a second or two you'll hear the noise.

I cannot say for certain that it's the fuel pump - I don't know if it's located under the bonnet, or in the fuel tank itself (which is under the rear seats) - but from my driver's seat, it seems to come from approximately the same position as the item shown in your photo, so I'm confident that it's the same thing on both our cars.

But would it do this even if the engine has not been running?
On my car, it makes the sound if I just turn the ignition on and off again, without starting the engine.
