Hi guys
I have a lovely 2005 jimny, the last few days it's got a very slight ticking noise when idle and driving. It's only noticeable when the passengers window is down! It sounds as if it's coming from the front but can't find anything that stands out?! Any ideas?
Thank you x

I had a similar thing - not on a Jimny but another car, and it turned out that it was a stone stuck in the tread.
Check your tyre treads for stones,

Check the usual; fluid levels, belts, fan, etc. If it varies with the revs then its probably something on the belts
