I have a '92 525i thats in great shape. Beginning two weeks ago, every time I turn there is a rattling sound as if screws were rolling in the trunk. I've finally determined that the sound is coming from the space directly behind the rear seats and above the trunk compartment (where the rear speakers are located). For the life of me, I can't figure out how to get into that area to get the debris out. If anyone has any idea please let me know, because its driving me crazy! Thanks in advance.

Are you sure it's coming from the parcel shelf? My initial thought was something broke loose in the spare tire well.

I rode in someone's E34 M5 a few years ago. He had a GOLF ball rolling around in the truck that he couldn't find. It was hillarious.

Turn...roll...roll...roll...thump...roll...roll... roll...thump :lmao:

Sucks, take everything apart that you can and try to find it. Must be some hidden area that catches stuff in the trunk of the E34....
