On starting the engine a ticking sound can be heard from what seems like the area around the drivers side headlamp. This goes on for about 2 or 3 minutes after the car is turned off. I thought it was the fanbelt/fan or something but it definitely seems to be coming from the headlamp area. Anyone any ideas??

Thanks in advance!!
Got a funny noise from mine too, but whilst looking i noticed there is a vacuum pipe which runs from the inlet manifold to the drivers headlight??? possibly to the headlight adjuster, maybe you adjuster is sticking?
