Annoying noise from frontaxel?


I wounder if anyone else has this annoying noise. When driving over a speedbump it sounds like a grinding noise. Its not the splash guard i have removed them. Im going crazy of this sound. Just like some bushing noise. But i have checked them and they are allright. The sound always comes with speedbumps and other bumps. The car is an E91 320D 2009

its probably just some dry control arms bushings, usually tends to happen on some cars when the weather is "dry or cold" a lot of the time it tends to go away on its own.

Check the accordian boots that cover the strut. They detach from the lower part of the strut body and make noise for a while. It eventually goes away.
