Like when Im reversing I hear this kinda sqweeky sound in my back of my car

Now I went outside and pushed up and down on the back, and it's def something on the back?
I guess it's the struts or I dont know what bmw uses in the back, but it's kinda like a sqeeky sound, coming from the back suspension

any clue?

how do you fix it?


and how much will it cost?

thx

I have the same problem with mine and I'm told it could be either the spring or the damper. I haven't looked closely enough yet but plan to in the next couple of weeks, check your bushings while you are checking the rest of your suspension, I'm told bog standard BMW bushings wear quite quickly.

Good luck.

Had same trouble when I bought the car... don't let a non-bmw mechanic try to fix this, it's probably a brake trouble....

My trouble is fixed, I had to replace a few brake parts.

I believe the important question is; when does it squeak?

RSM = Rear Shock Mount, it takes the top of the shock absorber and spreads it's force evenly on the frame of the car. The stock E36 ones fail before the rest of the car does.
Cheep (in compairison to other faulures like subframe and RTAB's!) and not too hard to replace.


The squeak could also be:
ebrake pads rubbing against rotor's interior
wheel bearing is shot.
rear trailing arm bushing is bad.

Yes, try to park the car without handbrake to see if sound is still present.
