Hi. Long time reader - first post. Fixing up 97 318i with 140k.

Checked sticky first-
Going over bumps results in sound from rear passenger like dropping a bag full of change. Shock mount seems fine (no cracks) although shock itself pretty rusty. Repeatedly leaning on rear panel (bouncing) does not reproduce noise.

2nd major issue is no ac or heat. Fan works through all stages. Digital control module works and lights fine. Only strong airflow from passenger side but neither hot or cold. Ac coolant pressure as measured is in green. Engine fan works. Compressor engaging. As suggested by bavauto swapped new water valve but no change. Ext temp thermostat working.

Any ideas? Thanks.

P.S. reading bimmerfest in bed with iPad good, typing post bad...
