View Full Version : problem with the 328xi

06-09-2010, 02:59 PM
I drove the car this morning and it felt weird, it seems to flow up and down more than usual. then when i got out of the car i heard a "z" sound from the rear. i can also hear the sound when i push down the trunk and release.

has anyone had this problem before? could it be some problem with the shocks? the road in our area is full of holes and bumps


by the way the car only has 1200km on it, could it because it is still in the break in period?

well it's like a squeek sound,like when you apply pressure on a old rusty spring

Maybe its just me but Id take my brand new under warranty car in for a check if you believe something is wrong. Just be sure to explain it to them the same way..car goes ZZZzzzzzzzzz.

handbrake maybe? does it still squeak if the handbrake isn't engaged?

Mine squeaks, I thought it was my springs at first.

could be shocks or springs .. brake pads from hand brake being up .. shitty shock mounts .. who knows.

tested out today and it indeed is caused by the hand brake.

thanks for all the help guys!
