Unfortunately not for very long ... The only advice I can offer that if your noise is intermittent see if it is beginning to happen more often or not. If not and you an live with it you might be better off leaving it alone.
Actually, I took it for a drive after work, and initially, the ticking noise was present. After driving a few miles, the noise went away. It hasn't come back the rest of the time. I dunno- I may just monitor it. If it comes back, I may just swing by my dealer and have them try to decipher what the noise could possibly be.
Thanks for replying...
