X5MC Rattling/knocking under central armrest

Hello,

I am owner of X5MC. I already have 2900kms. But thing described below happends since I took over it from bmw.

If I drive on worse surface I sometimes feel some knocking/rattling which seems to be under the armrest. It "knocks" to my elbow sometimes.

Does anyone also have such experience?

Yes happen to me, also if you go over street hump you will feel the same thing

I went four times to the dealership and they did not know how to fix it

Is it from something from the interior or do you think its exterior just being transmitted into the car?

Hi. I think 100% exterior (from suspension).

Its exact feeling like I have another more wheel - under my central arm rest. Its similar sound and feel how tire bumbps on surface

Did somebody experienced and solved this problem?

I am a bit afraid to give it to service for experiments So if somebody has more solvent and professional services around, give me infos pls.

Btw friend of mine who does in acoustics for other brand of cars told me it might be exhaust fastening. Hard to say if its normal or false.

But it definitively "knocks" under arm rest on rythmical surface.

I had the same issue. It was in and out of the shop over and over. They ended up replacing rear struts. They were popping when weight transferred laterally.
