Mystery clicking noise

It's a mystery because I'm currently 200 miles away from the Galaxy and my wife reports a noise like a loud indicator coming from the passenger side.  Not had a response yet to my query if it is in time with wheels or engine.  I'm inclined to think it might be a relay failing, as there is a big box full of magic on that side. 

Any other thoughts?

Could it be a stone stuck in the tread of a tyre?

I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all. Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.

Looks like it was the relay operating the washers, as they are not working.  Now to work out which one that is.  Driver's handbook might as well be a be a book of nursery rhymes for all the good it is.

You aren't going to believe this....


Better get those washer pumps and BCMs checked, folks.

Apparently not uncommon in French cars as well  - possibly because the link between Ford and Citroen/Peugeot meant they were buying washer pumps from the same source?

And if you have a BMW, it's apparently not uncommon for a failed oil pressure sender to do the same thing with engine oil.
