I hope you have solved the problem with noise, I had the same noise and got a copy of the BMW SI
# 32 03 98 which locate the noise to the center Tie Rod ( you can find this in the archieve at dated 13-2-02 I got my one changed and the noise disappered.
Good Luck

1st one is a faint clanking that comes from under the steering column ONLY when the A/C is on and it's hot out.

The other sounds like a faint rattle and it sounds like it's coming from somewhere low on my left side. I am thinking something in the door or the seat rails or something. It stops when I go straight or right but it rattles when the car veers to the left.

I appreciate any pointers...
