  • The 3 Series rear shock mounts (RSMs) are weak. These mounts hold the top of the rear shocks to the chassis. Repeated wear and tear on these mounts causes them to crack and break after many years of use. The worn-out shock mounts result in a clunking noise that emanates from the rear suspension while you're driving. Left unchecked and unfixed, the broken mounts can inflict permanent damage on the chassis by tearing the sheet metal in the rear wheelwells.

    dave Comments: Hi, thanks for your post. What would be a reasonable cost to replace rear shock mounts on a 97 z3?

    Thanks again,

    Begin by opening the trunk and removing everything from it--including the carpeting. If you have an E36, you'll also have to remove the rear speakers to gain access to the rear shock mount (see Photo 1). If you have a convertible, the rear shock mounts are located in the convertible top compartment behind the rear seat. Carefully pull back the molded carpeting in the trunk and remove whatever carpet fasteners hold the carpet down. Then remove the two retaining nuts that hold the rear shock mount to the chassis.

Reuse the plastic dust cover and the two concave washers from your old shock. Don't reuse the rubber bumper, as these are typically near disintegration by the time most people replace the mounts. Use new self-locking nuts on top of the shock, and affix the rear shock mount to the chassis. Finally, use a new gasket to seal the base of the shock mount to the chassis. Reinstall the shock mount and replace the rubber boot on top if it was there when you removed the old mount. Reattach the shock at the bottom, reinstall any speakers or carpet removed, and you're finished.
