Default Re: Slight metal clanking noise coming from the rear of the car

On my E46, I had a metallic sound coming from the left rear when going over small bumps and cracks at low speed. After jacking up the car, I recreated the same noise by hitting the tire/wheel. I found out the brake pad clips were a little loose, letting the pads rattling between the caliper and the disc. Clips spread out and a dab of silicone applied.

Default Re: Slight metal clanking noise coming from the rear of the car

I just noticed this noise on my M3 E90.
It is definitely a metallic "clunk" noise...faint but very audible. I noticed it happens when I am backing out of the garage, or when I accelerate from a stop.
I am going to check out the stones-in-rotor described here, but I am wondering if anyone else has found another possible reason.

Thanks!

I have the same exact issue. Just started about 3-4 weeks ago. Very consistent. I came here to post a thread about it and then saw this one! Ha!

Well, not funny really. I want to know what it is. I can't imagine it's caught stones or rocks. Sounds like tranny backlash or something.

reverse going like 5mph and slam on the brakes..do it a few times and it will dislodge all stones.
