I have a 2000 528i. just recently there has been a rattling noise coming from the right front. I can hear it when going over rough roads or small bumps. I have no idea what the cause is but I've heard it is a common problem. Can anyone help? please email me at PoinDextR@aol.com

Hi,

I had the same problem, and found two defective parts:
--> Anti-roll bar link ~$20
--> Thrust arm ~$100
Normaly after changeing the Anti-roll bar link the problem should be solved.
But it happens that the bearing of the Thrust arm is dev. to.
Note: If you change the Thrust arm you need the rubber bussing to (~$25)
