Recently when applying the foot brake I hear a "click" from somewhere underneath the car somewhere under the drivers seat. Is there a stoplight switch in this area?. Unfortunately I'm not in a position to look underneath the dci90

The stoplight switch will be located under the dash, on the pedal mechanism. Not sure if there is some form of electronics box under the seat from where a click may be emanating

Thanks Ivor. I will have to "Let it develop" as they say. It's not having any effect on the safety of the car and I can't get my indie garage involved at this time. I'm not driving at all at the moment because I'm under the government lock down for us over 70's.
It's ironic when the price of fuel and the Spring weather have made it so tempting to go for a drive.

Under the seat area but inside or outside the car? Does it happen when applying the brake to the car while stationary?

It's sounds like it is underneath the car somewhere from under the car seat back to possibly the rear wheel area. There are no fluid leaks and car stops fine.

Could be a bush in the suspension, moving when braking. Could be a brake shoe or pad, re-seating when braking. Both of those would need the car to be moving at the time. Any of those would be coming from the four corners though, not from under the seat.

Thanks two dogs. I can't see it being a suspension bush at 24,000 miles so when I can do something about it I'll check the back brakes first
