Groaning noise from nearside rear



  • Over the last week I've noticed a groaning from the nearside rear wheel/suspension assembly on my '3'. Originally I thought it was something loose in the boot but after clearing it out the noise still there. It only happens on bumpy roads or severe suspension movement but is getting very annoying. I'm fairly sure it is safe and will at until MOT in Jan but any ideas what it might be please?

    Attached is a link to a video of me firstly rocking wheel laterally and then pusing the rear up and down by hand and you can clearly hear it.
