Yep sounds like arcing. Any funny smells as well?

HT arcing can produce ozone and you'll be able to smell that.

As above wait till it gets dark and then get the bonnet up.

took the plastic part off the black and green wire and still does it. but there is no arcing at all. so not too sure what it could be. had a new coil aswell and it is doing it on this one aswell.

It might not be meant to do it but I've come across "noisy" coils before. Even some inductors I use for my electronics can make some strange noises.

Fingers crossed its normal though or we'll both be putting "wanted" posts up here for a new coil when they die ;)
