Whenever I go over a bump in my 1999 323is something rattles in what sounds like the right rear wheel area. I took the tire off and inspected the area and found nothing loose. Before taking the rotor off to expose the parking brake assembly, I was wondering if this could be the likely culprit? The noise sounds like a piece of metal is loose or a bolt or nut is bouncing around in a metal cavity. Any thoughts appreciated.

thats what i thought it was, but i checked it out and it was fine

but now i think ive diagnosed the problem to be either the mounts on the exhaust or the muffler

because the mounts on the 32X's arent as strong as the ones put on the M3, and in certain years they tend to break

im going to take mine in to have them replaced
