clunk

  1. Steering wheel clunk when straight.

    E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I just replaced my front struts, and now there is a fairly violent clunk in the steering wheel when going straight. The clunk disappears when I turn the wheel slightly left or right, and isn't there when going around corners. It's only when going straight (basically between 11 and 1 on the...

    E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)

  6. Clunk sound front right side, bumps and hitting the brakes??

    E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    I started hearing this sound, like something loose on the right front side. I had someone drive the car so I looked and listened, thought the caliper was loose. Took it off, inspected, nothing. :dunno: Today after doing that, while jacked up, grabbed the tire and wiggled it. Pushing and pulling...

    I've looked all over the Internet, searched every single website for BMWs, and have come up empty handed. My problem, there is a clunk coming from the rear of the car when I shift, go over a bump, or have one of the back wheels dip into a pothole. It sounds like a hollow clunk and can be heard...

  15. Protective Measures for Driving Hard

    E36/7 Z3 (1996-2002)
    Whats up community? I just bought my 2.8 99 Z3 with 80k miles. Car runs really good aside from this seemingly common clunking noise that i believe comes from somewhere near the rear diff when I'm shifting. Kind of more when I accelerate quickly in a low gear and then let off the gas too fast...
