Is is more of a popping than a clicking? If so it's probably your head gasket.

if it's while the engine is running, most likely exhaust leak. if it's while the engine is off and cooling down, no worries.

Re: clicking sound coming from under header (CaliG-60)

it happens all the time when the engine is on. can only be heard outside the car. it is an ireegular sound that kinda sounds like two cans hitting eachother quietly. it happens quite a few times every second

it should be cool to drive...it sounds like the cat or heat sheild, or maybe part of your exhaust is lose..

i has something like that(2 can clicking) coming from under my drivers floor, and it ended up being one of my exhaust clamps were messed up and juss needed to be re welded back on
