Question about 1999 BMW 318 ti

1 Answer

There is a humming noise from the rear of my BMW 318Ti at around 2000rpm, which disappears at around 3000rpm. I suspect the rear diff and have changed the oil, but it makes no difference. I also checked the rear wheel bearings and they seem fine.

Hi my I own a 2002 ford explorer that have a humming noise from the back axle. Also I have a rattling in my engine any help


for the humming check the rear tires for uneven wear. if the are choppy that will couse a humming noise. next check the axle seals, if they leak the rear diff will run low on fluid and cause the bearings to make noise. if the seals are leaking the rear diff will have to come out and be inspectec for internal damge,last possability is the rear wheel bearings they can be checked by raising the vehicle and moving the tire in and out to see if there is slack if there is movement from in and out they will need replacement, the have to be pressed in so you might want a shop to do that repair

I hear a humming noise in the rear when driving my 2001 BMW 325I. Stops when in neutral. gets louder as I excellerate


I expect you have a damaged rear differential. It is a common problem on these BMW's. I have just had mine replaced. I used a second hand diff unit from a breakers, which cost £281 (inc VAT and delivery). It arrived the day after I ordered it. A decent garage will charge you less than £200 to fit it.

Loud noise from rear of car


It happened in our car as well. The problem with our car was the bushings on the rear suspension needed to be replaced.

It is not an inexpensive problem and one that only the dealer could fix, at least according to a couple of shops I spoke with b4 I went to the dealer. With an alignment ( 4wheel - ours is AW), it costs around $900.
