Rattle is driving me nuts, please help!
Greetings to everyone,
First off, thank you for coming to my post. I have spent the past 2 days looking over previous posts and i cannot find any info that can assist.
I have had my car for just over a year, 2008 M5, 50k miles. For the past 5-6 months i have noticed a rattle only on significant acceleration. The noise has gotten worse, so much that my almost deaf girlfriend was able to hear it (she's not really deaf, she just loves to ignore me). The rattle goes away after i lift and does not return upon cruising at a stead speed. Cannot hear the rattle if my windows are up. Unfortunately I cannot pinpoint where the sound originates, however it seem like its coming directly from underneath the car. Has anyone experienced this? Any insight you can share? Its driving me nuts.
I have tried revving the engine in neutral, but there is no rattle. The sound only comes while i am driving. The car runs absolutely fine, no shakes, no thumps. I am taking the car in on Tuesday for service, while i am there i am going to ask my guy to see if he can determine the issue.
Thank you again for the help, i appreciate any info you can share.
