Any advice greatly appreciated

Before they start welding and chiselling make sure they check the gloss strips on the doors (front and back) they expand in heat and can tick too.

My reject was going to the body shop but I rejected the invasive repair as I'd only done 400 miles, whilst waiting for my replacement I found my drivers side was the gloss strip on the outside. I put neoprene tape down the inside of the front door on the overlap of the gloss strip and the tick went away.

One chap in Australia has just had the invasive chiselling on his car and it didn't sort his , the next dealer found it was the gloss strips , so his car went to body shop and was damaged for no reason.
Dealers are too quick to condem cars to invasive body shop work without doing proper checks first. You've nothing to loose by asking them to try this first.
Also make sure your doors are aligned first too as the gloss strip on front and rear rests on a seal on the pillar you can see this with doors open .

It's worth trying and mentioning this too your dealer.
Barnsh can you please add some photos if the mention areas? I am not sure if i understand correctly so some photos will be much helpful.

Hi
Although the thread I will point you to is for MY17, read through and at the end you will find what fixed mine, before handing it back. It now includes where to tape to solve the trim problem.
Appreciate it's a long thread but worth reading

Is two weeks without this problem good, then?

I went nearly six months on my current DS before it started to tick. It's a replacement for the first one which survived just over one day. So maybe you should make your own judgement.

Mine started after 2 months but some on here have survived for over a year and a half only for it to develope well outside the statutory 30 days or 6 months for easy rejection.
When I say easy you still have to fight all the way in most cases through your dealer with little help from CRC, unless you kick up a huge fuss. How you are treated depends on your dealer.

JLR have admitted they have no fix to date, this is clear by an open ended repair bulletin which you can find on this forum.

Oh and they've told us at some stage through dealerships that it's fixed , it's not.
You pay your money , you take a chance.
