    Hi guys. When driving the other day i got this loud clunking noise from the rear all of the sudden. No prior noises. This happens when i'm changing gears, pushing the throttle, and letting off the throttle. It's hard to say if the sound is beneath the back seat area or further back, with the...

    Heya everyone. I’ve had the rumble strip issue (shuddering at 40kph) for a while now and have been trying to find the source. I have recently replaced the rear axles in case it was the cv joints starting to fail. However the shuddering was still there. Anyway, my abs, traction, and handbrake...

    Hi! This is one of my first posts, my name is Brant and I have a 2002 325ci 5mt with the ZF 5 spd swapped in. Lately, I have been plague with this god awful noise that is impossible for me to find and diagnose. When taking off from a dead stop about 50% of the time I get this audible but loud...

    Hello guys, recently ive been noticing an issue where my 2003 325xi (with no check engine lights or anything) start to have a klunk when slowing down as well as a jolty acceleration. Ive also noticed this occurs in the regular drive (i have automatic), but seems to not be as apparent when on the...

    I have a 2005 325xi automatic and when i go from park to reverse or reverse to drive and also sometimes when letting off the gas then reapplying it i hear a clunk/thud from under the car, the rear diff bushing and subframe bushings dont look the best but when i recorded under the car it didnt...

    Just bought a 328i. Clunking noise coming from rear end when putting it into first gear, when shifting from first to second hard, and really whenever a load is put on it. went under the car and the axles have some pretty decent side to side play. differential bushings dont appear to be destroyed...

    Hey guys, I'm having driveline issues with e46 320i that I think might be my DMF on its way out but after looking at symptoms online that other people have had, I'm not completely sure. The most noticeable issue I'm having is my car gets very lurchy in first and second gear if I'm not really...

    Hello! I recently did a big repair on my 2003 320D e46, changing all rear bushings, wheel bearings, handbrake repair, and got it aligned. However, now there is a cluck every time I change gear, specifically when I release the clutch pedal. I have done nothing to the diff other than removing...

    Hello all! New to the forums. Never thought I'd be making one of these posts after all these years reading various FAQs but here I am with an issue that I can't really seem to find any info on. I just bought a 2002 325xi Wagon w/ Automatic transmission with a clunk when I put the car into drive...

    First post on this site, and I'm sure 100 people have posted this exact same thing (so my apologies in advance), but i find the search function in all forums frustrating. Even if someone can link me to good threads i'll be happy :) Brought my 2000 323i (175k km)(manual tranny) to about 3...

    Just tonight I noticed a small clunking noise appearing to come from the rear driver's side. It's not very loud. I can't hear it when driving around town. I only noticed because I was driving through a drive-through restaurant and the sound reflected off the wall well enough for me to hear it...

    My e46 325i manual has this distinct problem where if the rpms are really high and i push in the clutch really quickly itll clunk. This doesnt even involve me throwing it into a seperate gear or anything, only a quick engagement of the clutch facilitates this problem. It happens at parking lot...

    Hi, sorry if this is a repost but it seems like all the rattling threads have different root causes and I wasn't sure which one to pursue. My 99 328i w/ 131k miles has started making some weird noises and doing some weird things in the past week or two. This started with a bit of a shake back...

    Hey guys, I'm back with another thread. I thought I could figure out my issue without the threads, but my suspect failed part (CSB) doesn’t match others symptoms. I can’t find any threads that describe some of the symptoms I have. I’m sure if I knew the failing part I could find answers easier...

    Good morning all, I much appreciate in advance the help you might be able to give me. I have been searching for hours now and could not find anybody reporting the same issue as myself so here it goes. When driving, particularly on highway, a metallic rubbing noise will occur at random and...

    Hey guys! This is probably my happiest post on here since this will be my final repair to a completely sound car (shhh, don't mention VANOS seals. That's my summer project)! I have a fear of being under my car...with my current tools, so to avoid the fear and any snags I'd reach along the way...

    So I have replaced my control arm bushings to stop the tramlining issues. However it still is all over the place. And makes a loud clunk/thud when spiking the brakes and messes with steering input or when hitting bumps. Is there a easy way to check the other small bushings on the control arms...

    Hey gang! I have a 2002 coupe with auto transmission, 69.5k mostly babied miles (except the joy I get from putting the pedal to the floor when merging on the highway :excited:) When accelerating, all gears shift smooth as silk. City & highway downshifts are flawless. However, I've noticed in...

    Man where do I begin? About a week ago I fixed a clunk I had in my steering... or so I had thought? One of my lower strut bolts had came loose... after tightening everything back up to spec, all seemed well. The next day I replaced the universal steering coupler to tighten up the steering...
