Question about 1997 BMW 318
I have a 328i 00 it's making a loud rumbling noise in the driver's side axle area, it stops whenever i go to the left or make a left turn
You will have to check axles, wheel bearings, and also believe it or not, check you exhaust. Everytime you make a turn, you exhaust might be picking up off your frame, and when you are driving normal, it is riding on something. That is actually the case with my Dodge Dakota. Took forever for me to figure it out though. As far as the bearings go, you will have to jack the car up in the front, and grab the top and bottom of the tire, and try to wiggle it, if it moves, you may need a wheel bearing. Like you said as well, your axle could be the problem, the boot could have split, and lost all the grease, and got dirt in it. As you can see, there are a number of things that could arise from your such problem. Let me know if anymore info comes up, I would like to know. Good luck
