Thank you. Appreciate all the advice. Tried what you suggested. The acc does not go on. So seems most likely that battery may be going bad. Please advise on how to proceed as i do not want to mess us the computer.

Regarding the clicking noise, it does not go away when I brake. However, i did consider the option of brake related and reviewed one of the other related posts on this site, and tried to press down the clips on the brake calipers, which did not seem loose, but the noise is gone. Lets see for how long?

Re: Clicking noise

Following up on the clicking noise. After everything else had been checked and replaced with a huge bill... the only thing left was to check the diff. Thanks to my excellent mech janu... we found the fault. .. wait for it. Remove the exhaust system in 1 piece. .. prop shaft and diff are good. In between the diff and the right rear wheel is a convex shaped structure with a lot of tiny screws on it... looks similar to a truck tyre... anyway. . These small screws were loose. Once tightened. Problem solved.

Thanks for the update DrDubai my convertible started screeching noise from the right rear wheels quite exact symptoms like yours, removed the wheels and couldn't find any signs of iron sharpen iron. Hope my solution comes easy like yours. my observation though is that the tire on the wheel is has the most wear among the tires, especially the inside. This could point to a different fault then yours. The noise doesn't sound like loose wheel cap or flapping tire wall. irregular clicking and long screech.
Fingers crossed.
