E39 M5 Rear diff

Hi Guys ... I have a bit of a rattle coming from some place ... was under the car looking for anything loose ... the shaft that goes out to the drivers side rear wheel, from the diff, has some play in it, I can move it in and out about half an inch or so and it has a bit of a clicking noise, is there suppose to be play in it? Also noticed that the drive shaft up front was quite hot and the heat shield there was in contact with it, is that normal? Thanks for any help!
