Not much more to say...I was hearing a metallic clanking/rattling noise coming from the underside/back of the car...a 98' 328i auto...and when traveling over bumps and potholes w/ the windows down, the noise was very apparent...and annoying. With reccomendation from the dealer and from reading the forums, I decided to replace my rear strut mounts. When I did take the old RSM's off...they looked fine..no holes in the rubber, perfect. The car has 90k on it, so I figure they must've been replaced by the previous owner...since they were in suck good shape. Turns out the noise culprit was the heat shield surrounding one of the cat converters. I still dont really have a fix for it, but was just going to rip it off and see what happens.
any input on that???
