FYI: As i wrote in that threat, I had the ticking as well and t was getting worse. Then last month I took it for a drive in humid weather on a road with a lot of turns and twists. I drove it hard. After that the ticking completely disappeared and hasn't come back. Nobody's cleaned or adjusted the torque.
