Hi, after 30 seconds or so of my car idling/driving there is a ticking noise coming from behind the passenger headlight area/infront of passenger wheel arch. If i put my hand on the moulding inside the wheel arch i can feel the ticking.

Relay or something? First based on the ticking i thought it was a lifter tick until i popped the bonnet and followed the sound. I just got the car and have no idea what is actually in that area and cant see in enough to check it out.

Any ideas?
