Customer Question
I have a dull...

I have a dull knocking noise when turning left and reversing have replaced both cv joints ..

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

I feel its coming from the drivers sid and its been ongoing for about 4 months.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your BMW?

Bmw e53 x5 2003 30ltr diesel sport 73.000 miles.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your X5 yourself? What have you tried so far?

As I have said earlier have replaced cv joints both sides and I have a friend who is an experienced mechanic doing the repairs.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thanks
