Re: Ticking Noise, Au111 Xr8
Yep it's the purge valve solonoid. Very common problem on some AU's. It's not faulty, still works fine (damn I'm starting to sound like a Ford tech) but the tickin' was enough for me to change it on my AU XR8. Quite easy to do. The solonoid comes with all the tubing attached. Do not try to take the tubing off and just replace the solonoid, there's a reason why it comes with tubing attached. Take the stone tray off from under the front bar and you'll see the purge canister and solonoid (under the left headlight). Push up to take the purge canister off, unclip electrical connector, undo the old tubing, unclip the tubing from engine side by pulling back on locking cilps. Unbolt the airbox if you like to make it easier. Installation is a reversal of the above.
