156 weird noises?

Hey guys, first of all i'd like to mention that i had the car for close to a year now, and i had no major problems with it so far. However there are two minor things that are irritating me when driving my 156 around.

The first weird thing is that if you turn the ignition on, or have your engine running you can hear a ticking under the dash, seems like it's right behind the speedometer or somewhere around that area. The ticking isn't loud mind you, it ticks mostly with each second, like a clock ticks, but sometimes it stops for a while, or ticks twice a second. As i said it's quite minor but i don't want any problems brewing under that dash, so if anyone might know what it might be, i'll be very happy to listen.

The second thing that is quite annoying if you like your car to sound good, is a semi loud vibration somewhere under the engine. It sounds like there is a thin penny washer that's loose and it vibrates when the engine is revving on exactly 2000rpm. It doesn't matter if the engine is cold or hot, as soon as the rev counter reaches 2000rpm, you hear the mysterious object vibrating to the frequency of the engine. I know you guys might not know what it is but if there are any known issues with this i'm sure you will. The sound comes from somewhere under the engine and is heard the loudest from under the front right wheel arch. I will buy some locking jacks to lift the car up so i can take a proper look under neat but at the moment i'm without a job.

Thank you for your time everyone.
