    I recently noticed a clicking sound (sounds like a relay) coming from
    the back (somewhere behind the front seats) of the car. The noise
    usually occurs when going over bumps in the road. If searched
    HMASERVICE.COM but cannot find any relays in the back. I removed the
    rear hatch panel with the car running and tried knocking on things but
    no luck reproducing the sound.

    Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

    You'll probably need to ride around in the back with someone else driving.
    The fact that it occurs over bumps points toward something loose or some
    sort of other mechanical issue; it's not very likely to be electrical.

    Thanks for the feedback. I did just that but the sound seemed to be
    comming from different places. I removed the interior hatch cover and
    discovered a small piece of metal of weld flash in the hatch door
    interior. Removed that and the sound is now gone. Drove me crazy
    because it sounded just like a relay but couldn't find any relays
    beyond the frnt seats in the diagrams.

    Thanks again!
