Hmmm, that could be it. I remember reading about the issue on early model X5ís but I thought bmw solved the issue during the facelift. I have a 05 4.4 if I didnít mention earlier.

Ok, when I get home from work I can bolt her back up and see if I can record the sound. Not looking to replace the wrong part!
