Alright i have a 1990 325i. Lately i have been noticing this rattling sound coming from the left rear wheel. So today i took off the wheel and checked the anti rattle clip and all the wires runnin down around the wheel like brake sensor etc.., nothin seemed loose. So i gave the rotor a few bangs with my fist and sure enough there came the sound. It's not the wheel bearing because those were recently replaced. I am gunna take off the wheel and rotor and look inside there. Do you guys have any idea what the noise could be? Also do u know where i could find a diagram of all the parts of the hub assembly-That would be great-Thanks

I have a BMW shop manual and a haynes manual which sucks, but the shop manual shows very descriptive pictures and tells you aboput everything, hopefully i can get the noise to disappear.

Le_max is an unknown quantity at this point
even if your ebrake is not working, the spring may still be there.
my oncle with his 535i had the exact same problem.

If it is a metalic ratle, there is you answer,
remove the rear disk, you will see the mecanism for the ebrake

Yea i figured it out. It was the e brake. It was this little metal thing that when u pull on the e brake it tightens the pads. I tightened it up and the rattle is gone... Thank God.. it was starting to piss me off.

Bentley Manual.



Indispensible if you do ANY of your own work on your bimmer. The Haynes sucks, and I haven't ever seen a Chilton's for our cars.
