OK, folks. Here is the problem, 1994 325i rear end make a strange sound only when going in reverse. The sound is most commonly refered to as a low pitch moan. Like an old man trying to move. Also most prevelent when turning the steering wheel to the left msking the rear go left. ANYONE HAVE AN IDEA? Thanks in advance to anyone with an idea.

You should check your differential fluid... either that or change it... www.pelicanparts.com has a write up on how to check and replace the fluid. Rather easy really.

If it’s only when reversing I’d check out the brakes especially the parking brake
