3-Series (E46, E90)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1999 to Current. Models include: BMW 316i, BMW 318i, BMW 318Ci, BMW 320i, BMW 323i, BMW 325i, BMW 330i, BMW 328 Ci, BMW 328i, BMW 325i/xi, BMW 330Ci, BMW 320d, BMW 330d, BMW 335d.
So I have a 2005 330CI ZHP that has started to rattle from the left rear when I hit a bump. I checked my bushings, sway bar etc all look good. For good measure I have replaced the shock as well. Still getting the noise. It sounds almost like it is higher up around the shoulder level in the car but clearly coming when the left rear hits a bump...any ideas?
Well I didn't see a crack or anything like that on it anywhere it all looked good... I think I will still take it to the local BMW dealer to see if I am missing something. If it is that then they will fix it...AND the dealer I bought it from specializes in BMW's and he said they check subframes in all E46's before he buys 'em. If it turns out not to be that any other things pop into mind?
