There is a rattle coming from the rear of my BMW 325i, and i am almost positive that it is the brake pad rattling but i am not sure. Is this common, and are there any ways to fix this?

First OFf, Welcome to BMW-forums.
as for your brake rattle, when does it happen? only when your braking? or other times? your best bet is to take the rim off, and see if anything is outta place or not right. check the pads themselves, and check to make sure the calipers arent seized

The front brake pads have three metal clamps that plug inside the caliper cylinder. If one of them breaks off it might cause a rattling noise.

I agree.

Check to make sure your anti-rattle clip is still in place. If you don't know what it looks like, you are basically looking for a things that looks like hunting bow minus the wire.

I also have a rattle coming from the rear driver's side wheel well on my 1994 325is, I've just put new springs and billstiens on, but the noise was present before this. I've looked at the brakes and nothing appears to be out of place. Any ideas?

I looked at the brake pads and the inside one on the right rear side (the one with the brake wear cable coming out of it) seems to have a space between the top and the bottom, and it doesnt look tight.

It only happens when im rolling or accellerating. It doesnt happen while im braking because the pad is pushed up against the rotor so it can't rattle.
