Hey there.

I have a Ford Focus MK2 56-plate Zetec Climate.

Only very recently, I have noticed a clicking coming from the fuse box under the glove box.

It happens when..

1) Front wipers operate intermittently.
2) Rear wipers operate
3) Turn on rear window heater
4) Turn on dipped lights
5) Turn on ignition (without starting car)

This is really !Removed! me off.

I suspect the relays but..

I've tested the two visible relays that I can see and the clicking is still audible even when I remove them.

I've also checked the battery terminals and they appear clean.

Please, please, please can someone tell me where the clicking is coming from and how to stop it?

P.S. Merry christmas!

The noise is totally normal relay function.
If you feel they are too loud maybe they would benefit from a replacement.
Usually all relays are on the front or back of the glovebox fuse board.

Thanks for the speedy reply.

I realise clicking is normal in a relay but I can't understand why its become more noticeable all of a sudden.

I'd love to replace it but knowing which one to replace is the problem. I can't physically see another relay switch unless its inside the white fuse box housing.
