I did a quick search and members on the forum have said the ticking noise could be normal and related to injectors. Would that be a similar case here or is this enough to warrant a vehicle inspection?
if its from the engine after a long drive or you were driving hard, that's the metal under the car expanding from being hot, common on many cars.
