    Does the clicking sound like it originates from the front of passenger footwell?

    If so, it's likely the same clicking that I have in my 2007. Other threads have identified it as a relay closing when we step on the brake and the brake lights are activated.

    This clicking is one of those so-called normal things.

    Since it has been identified as normal, I usually only hear it when I start up in the quiet of my garage.

    Once I drive away I enjoy my C6 so much that I fail to hear the clicks. That's how they get away calling it "normal".

    I don't know if all, or even most C6s have the clicking. After owning several Corvettes, I have trained myself to expect rattles, squeaks, parts that break, and noises.

    I am very pleased with this C6 in most ways because it has no rattles, or squeaks, and only minor things have been defective... so far. I try to overlook the clicking and enjoy the car.

    No, I haven't asked a dealer about it since I only hear it when I start a drive or sometimes at a stop light.

    Yes. This is normal. It is coming from pasenger footwell area and is relay. My '09 did it and now my '10 does it.
