A couple of weeks ago I noticed a 'clicking' sound in my 2004 mini convertible. It sounds like it is coming from the foot well or somewhere on the front drivers side.
It only occurs in the lower gears and seems to do it when i am accelerating/decelerating, for example when i am crawling along in traffic and it also occurs when changing gears, however it doesn't always do it, it may be there one day and then gone the next, sometimes it does it loads or not at all, there isnt really a pattern to it. I thought it might have something to do with the hot weather but the past few days it has been relatively cool and the clicking still occurs.
I have read a few other posts on here about clicking noises and it seems like a common problem, some people have suggested it was the drive shaft or the engine mount or the front bushes etc.
Can anyone possibly pinpoint what the problem is that I'm having? I don't really want to be replacing or changing various parts if it doesn't solve the problem
If you want any more info let me know! found it hard to try and describe the problem really! Thank you!!
