Default New noise....

Noticed this afternoon after parking up from a quick shopping trip. Pulled up at the kerb with the driver's window open, handbrake and neutral and thought I'd heard almost a pop/click noise which was enough to have me leave the engine running and pop the hood.

Engine was turning over, normal fan noise but what sounded like a regular cycle of 'click-whizz' like one of those cheap kids' wind up walker toys (when they fall over and the tension unwinds all at once as there's no resistance)

Each click-whizz cycle takes about a second.

Subsequently turned engine off. No interesting puddles under the car but I'll go take another look in 15 mins or so after a cup of tea.

Any suggestions as to the source of the noise. Certainly not heard it before
ex- 2000 Titanium Silver S50 with AC Schnitzer road suspension, exhaust, rear wing and gear knob
now 2002 Sapphire Black S54 with black/red interior, S54 Bearing Shell upgrade with ARP Con Rod bolts, Cam shaft bolt upgrade
