Ticking Sound Near Left Shoulder

I just wanted to thank Burg Boxster for his suggestions on how to fix that annoying ticking sound that I kept hearing from over my left shoulder. It turned out to be the door latch. I put tape around it as he suggested and it instantly stopped. Now I just have to get a tool and adjust the latch. Man, that's nice to have gone!

Glad to help but based on your sig - I would've thought the problem was your bones a rattlin'

Finding the tool you need can be challenging - it's a triple square (M8 IIRC).


Your std Napa/Pep Boys probably won't have but a MAC or Snap-On truck may. Apparently Lisle Tools also makes a set

Good luck and for others w/ an annoying ticking sound over shoulder, here's the original thread w/ a couple of possible sources and the solutions documented.
