Metal sound from rear

Hello guys,

i have e46 325 cabrio and today i was driving topless and heard some noise from rear. It was random and sounds like metal was hitting metal. When i came home i try to push a car down and i did not hear anything. But then I kick in rear tire(left side if you look at the face of the wheel). and heard this sound again. But when i kick it again on the other side(right side if you look at the face of the wheel) i did not heard anything.
Do you have any idea what this could be? And if it's possible, give me part. no. please

Tnx,
Miha

Next time, pull the e-brake gently and see if the noise changes or goes away.

Could also just be worn out brake pads. The wheel needs to come off to have a look around and make sure nothing is broken, binding, or worn out.

Tnx...I changed e-gear brake pads two month ago, and i didn't hear this voice before that, but i remember I heard this a few weeks ago driving windows down...maybe realy is something with that.

Inspect your subframe around where the bushings are on the rear axle carrier.
