Clicking fuse box - wiper turns

Everytime my wiper turns i hear clicking on my fuse box. Just noticed this today. Is this normal? Never had hardwired or anything yet

I have heard this clicking noise on various new-ish bmw's, including on a 7 series a few months ago. I'm not sure if it's normal but it does seem to be fairly common in my experience. Not sure if my one does it

It's just the relay turning on and off. Perfectly normal.

This is the only thread I could find about the wiper relay noise.

Sitting in stop and go traffic, with the stereo on and the wipers in automatic rain sensing mode, the clicking noise I hear from the relay drives me nuts. I don't know if it gets worse over time, but I tend to notice it about 30 minutes into my commute (typically when traffic really ties up and I'm forced to come to a dead stop).

I've never heard this noise in any other BMW or any other car I've owned. When you're crawling around at 5-10mph, I refuse to turn the radio up loud to mask the noise.

Does everyone hear this clicking noise from the relay?
