you have to remove rear speakers and trunk carpeting and sound insulation material under carpet. That is the most time-consuming part about replacing mounts. You will then see the hard rubber and metal mounts and can see if they are cracked or if the rubber is separating from the metal part of the mount. The mounts are right under the rear speakers. I cut a hole in the insulation above the mount and a slit in the carpet so I can replace mounts in half the time.

: I think I may have the same problem... how do I inspect it? Still under warranty, but I'd rather look at it myself first.

: : $60 in parts, 1.5 hours and very easy DIY repair. Buy the Bentley manual.

: : : I had the same problem... Turns out that the rear shock mount broke (its actually a rubber mount) Dinan quoted me $290 to fix both.

: : : : I just lowered my car, about 2 months ago, but my left rear shock/strut started knocking, when I go over the littlest bump.? anyone know why?
