I'm going to most likley order the part tomorrow and swap the sucker out.
Search for DISA on youtube, you should find a video where a guy shows you how to unplug it. You can do this while the car is idling to prove that it is what's clicking. Happened to me, I unplugged it, clicking stopped, plugged it back in, ordered a new DISA, swapped it out. Job jobbed. (Clean the MAF while you're in there)

There is also a DIY on this forum about how to repair the device yourself using some epoxy (no new DISA required), but it's dangerous because it requires loosening a pin that you then really really need to get secured back in place. If that pin ever comes loose it goes into the engine.
