Hi guys,
I've looked everywhere, or I thought I did, for info on the rear disk and the rattle that they can make on the LT. I have an 03 and I know I read about it somewhere on the site but I can't seem to find it now when I need more info. Someone wrote about it failing while they were on a trip.
Any ideas. This rattling at low speed is driving me nuts and I think I'll have to finally fix it.

The one that failed on a trip was the new style five rivet version BMW came out with to eliminate the squeal. All five rivets sheared off. The old style has 8 or 10 (I can't remember). If it is really rattling also check the thickness as I have worn one out in about 50 K (at least it was close to the limit of 6.5mm or 0.2559 in ). Best to just get an EBC replacement.
