Cracking Sound?
 
Hey guys ever since I bought the car I have been hearing cracking sound in the back, It sounds like the plastic panel in the back is rubbing against something. If I am driving on the expressway I wont hear anything its when I drive on a rugged road or turn sharp. I tried finding where the sound is coming from but cant locate it. Has anyone else had this issue?

subframe really? It sounds more like plastic rubbing against something. How could I fix it if thats the problem?

i doubt it's the subframe since all the bmw i've been into have tons of cracking noise :hmm:. my friends had a '10 335 and it's the same thing, if not even more...

Just inspect it anyway because you don't know what could be wrong under there.

i'm a noob but i thought it's a safe bet that 04 subframe were the one they used to fix the problem in earlier model?
