G30 (2017 - Current)
The next generation 5 Series, chassis code G30, arrives at dealers in February 2017. Looking like a scaled down 7 Series and riding on the CLAR platform, the new 5 Series will have a focus on lightweight and sporty performance. Engines options will come from BMW's new B family for the 530 and 540 and a turbocharged V8 for the M550i. Read more about the 2017 5 Series

17' 5 series rear clicking sound

Hey guys!

I have another post on here but wanted to make a new one to see if i get more responses.

So I have a 2017 530i

It has had a constant clicking sound going on and getting worse in the rear.

its like a tapping metal with plastic kinda sound. over rough bumps and road

(rear passanger side C pillar) near the seatbelt area.

I thought it was the seat latch, seatbelt, rear deck, door, and nothing i have done works.

the last time i brought it to the dealer, of course it didnt make a sound. I even drove it with the shop foreman.

Now its really annoying me. The car has 14k miles on it. its fairly new.


any idea what it could be?
im thinking maybe the sway bars? or possibly the bushings? idk let me know what it could be?

No idea but still, take it in and report it, let them find it.
They will do their own drive.
It also starts the paper trail for the future.
