Hi, I have a 10 month old 520d and it creaks from the rear when moving slowly - doing my head in. Anyone have any knowledge of what’s causing it. It doesn’t happen at speed ?

10 month old car fixed with Gaffa tape! Not what you'd expect.


I think you’ll find that BMW will call it Sound Insulating tape similar posh name to hide away from the fact that most modern cars now creak and rattle

Car manufacturers have been doing this for years using a felt type tape to insulate offending pieces of trim. I honestly don't see it as a problem.

Yeah if it solves the issue, surely thats all that matters?

I took it to the dealers last week, and they fixed it. It was the rear seat. The removed it and added some tape to the offending areas. It’s sorted. 

 

It'll come back.

I lost count of the number of times my seat came out and put back in, I was going to push them to check fuel tank and parcel shelf welds and boot lid but I got so fed up of rear seat creaking and rattling I got rid and bought an X3
