2012 M35H/M37 - Slight Rattling/Knocking Noise at Low Speeds

Postby sadboy » Tue Mar 17, 2020 7:26 am

Hi everyone,

I have a slight rattle in my 2012 M35H that is noticeable at lower speeds on the driver side. Friend is convinced it is the sway bar endling and it is really only noticeable at lower speeds during slight bumps.

Definitely notice it more as the car is in EV mode at those speeds and the cabin is dead quiet so you can hear everything.

Thoughts?

Thanks

If it seems to be initated by changes in the road (bumps, etc.) then I would be inclined to agree with your friend. Do you have a video?

will try to get a video shortly. but yes generally over changes in elevation - cannot replicate by specifically turning

hoping it is the sway bar links as they are cheap on RockAuto.

Also do you happen to know if Sway Bar Links are the same as Stabilizer Links?

That is what RockAuto has listed under suspension.

Yes, they are the same thing. When I was lowed on my 07 M35x with BC coilovers, my links would go back every 5kmi like clock work. I tried like 5 different brands.

Mine was making a low rattling noise that was driving me nuts, checked everything and just replaced all endlinks and it seems to be gone now. I went with the Mevotech from Rock Auto, hope they last.
