Hi. I'm getting a strange, not very loud rattling sound. Car is an 08 E61 535d lci. 140,000miles ish.. It happens in 3rd gear (in manual mode) and in drive if its in the same gear, between 30 and 40mph, accelerating relatively hard from 1,500 to over 2000 rpm. I think it's coming from lhs of engine bay, but others say it's from everywhere (front, back, centre etc-not much help). Sounds like a mounting maybe, but could be prop bearings (csb) or rubbers (guibo thing) etc, but it's ok at other speeds and gears. Also noticed earlier that it's not quite as smooth when starting off or low speeds. Has anyone had similar symptoms or noises? Are these indicative of anything specific. Not had a chance to have a proper look yet. I did open the bonbet and stick it in drive/reverse to see the movement, of which there was some but I don't think the mounting has truly 'gone'. I've recorded it but it's not very easy to hear. I'll need to edit it a bit, I'll try to upload it later, if I can get a sound file to work! Thanks
Hi. What's the best course of action with a clicking c.v. (the rear joint, not the uj.)? Is there a metal shroud around the rubber boot? Can the thing be rebuilt or at least regreased? Is this a mate's lift and bit of perspiration type job or do I give to a garage? Car is a 530ia. Thanks.
