I’ve seen this thread everywhere and still cannot find the issue myself. 2002 330I. I have about 91.000 miles on it and I have replaced the sway bar end links and the lower control arm bushings. There’s a clunk in the front of my car whenever I brake or turn in either direction. There is about a quarter inch of slack in the wheel as well when turning. Sometimes if I let the car sit for a while and push on the tire with my foot, the clunk will happen once, but when I do it again nothing happens. Also, after driving and leaving the car parked, you can hear a pop once in a while from the front as if the car is settling. I cannot find anyone to diagnosis problem whether it’s in other threads or friends who are mechanics. I suspect it is the rack and Pinion but haven’t got a definite answer yet. People have told me it could be strut mount bearings, ball joints, control arms, tie rods. I’m going to attach a video from YouTube I made showing slight play in the rack when twisted with an adjustable wrench. (It’s only about 30 seconds long.) The insides of my tires are also slightly worn, more than the outside. Here’s the link to the video, any insight is helpful thank you!!
