Strange clicking sound under and near gear selector just after brake fluid replaced
Just after brake fluid replaced I've noticed an odd thing with my 2015 Range Rover Evoque SD4. If it was there before, I didn't notice it. When I have the car in Park or Natural (and powered on) and I press the brake pedal, I hear a clicking sound under and near gear selector and release brake pedal I hear a clicking sound again under and near gear selector. It clicks once per press/release and is solidly repeatable. I can feel the clicking vibration when I place my hand on the gear selector, so the source must be in or under that center selector area. It seems like the brake is running normal when driving, but I don't understand it or know whether anything is going wrong.
The noise does not occur when the car's "in gear" and the operation of the brakes does not seem to be any different than it used to be, before I noticed this.
Anybody got anything on this? I couldn't find anything from searching the forums. Thanks

There is a protection mechanism that prevents the gear selector from been rotated from D to P or R etc. for obvious reasons while the car is moving. When the brake pedal is pressed that mechanism disengage in order for you to select a gear. That click sound comes from that mechanism and it has always been there (sometimes making a lower click sound), I don’t know why you noticed it now!
