When I put the wiper blades on, on the travel left across the windscreen towards the normal position there is a clicking just before they hit the bottom. It would seem that the click is coming from the passenger side dash area.

It's rather annoying :( does everyones Mk2.5 do this or just mine? Any fixes for this folks?

It's the wiper relay on the internal fuse board.
It happens on all cars with internal relays.

Don't use your wipers? :D
Sorry, the clicking is the relay working, if it didn't click i'd be worrying.

You can hear the relay, but it's hardly noticeable. You forget about it after a minute or so when the radio's on!
