Clunk

When ever I put my car in reverse there is a clunk while I'm moving backwards. Any thoughts to what it could be. It only started this today. I have 1100 miles on my car

I apologize for the dissatisfaction of the noise you may be experiencing. Have you brought it to a dealership for proper diagnosis? They should be able to pinpoint the issue for you.

Please let me know if this was an option for you.

Mine does this too. When I back into my driveway, if I apply the brakes even slightly I hear a good heaf/feel a good CLUNK. Never bothered to take it in because it only happens at very low speeds and only in reverse.

For me, yes. Backing downhill, I usually have to slightly engage the brakes and when I do, it clunks once and that's it. I don't know if this would be related to the OP's 1lt, I also don't know if his is an m6 or a6.

There is a service bulletin regarding this issue a lot of cars have this problem. There are also other threads that address the issue. It is a known problem and one you should definitely have checked out. Don't take no as an answer from the dealership, or an I don't know, because as I said there is a service bulletin out.

Thanks Beave, I'll bring it up when I take it in to get my tire monitors re-learned.
