Muffled tapping sound in engine bay

On my 2014V6 convertible with 5k miles I'm hearing a muffled tapping at idle that seems to get quieter when I rev to 2k or push the clutch in. When at idle again or when clutch is released it it much quieter until I stop driving and idle again. Service writer at dealer said I should get a louder stereo but the shop manager heard the noise and said he will contact ford to see if it has been reported anywhere else. So far I have had to get a rear axle replaced under warranty because of a constant squeak, which the same service advisor could not hear. It seems to be under the rear of the engine and does not change speed with engine rpm. It's low pitched and not a squeak.

Don't discount the possibility of a very slight exhaust leak. This can often sound like a 'soft tap'. My truck has a slight leak on the left manifold and for a wihle there I was thinking bad lifter... before I remembered its OHC ... hey, I'm used to the old Mopar 318s.

I believe i have the same tapping sound. Mine sounds like a rattle/clinking when I'm near a building or in a tunnel going low speeds with the clutch out. Once i put the clutch in or speed up it goes away. Still haven't taken it in.

Both of my 2014's have made that same noise. Has not yet developed into a deeper problem after 20,000 miles and a lot of racing.

Proving to my fellow racers that the disdain that some GT drivers have for V6 drivers is unfounded, one results archive at a time since 2013.
