Rattling noise

Hello fellows, recently I encountered a rattling noise coming from the front when I was turing right, this was very easily noticed when the windows opened. The symptom still existed after dealer changed whole new set of front brake disc and pad.

I am using BMW PS for more than half year, do you guys thinks that related?

Depends on what the noise is. If they just did a brake job it might be something as simple as the dust shield got bent and is slightly touching the rotor.

However, the dealer already changed a whole new sets of brake discs and brake pads for me.

There are a couple other threads about it:

What happened to me was.. I had some breyton wheels. With the stock tires they didn't click. I put on some Hankook tires and all of a sudden the clicking started! However, many other peoples running the same tires in the same sizes didn't have the problem. Wasn't the CV joint. Wasn't the sway bar, or any other suspension parts. Wasn't the brakes or the bearings. The dealership put on a set of stock wheels and tires and the sound went away, so they just blamed my aftermarket tires. When I switched to winter tires the clicking DID go away... but I don't know if tires CAN make that sound... and that still doesn't explain the people with different tires having the same problem and the people with the same tires not having this problem. Either way, it's not a huge problem or dangerous, from what I gather. Just annoying.

Cannot, so I took my car back to them again. Hoping this time they can really figure out the cause of this clicking noise.

They finally found the problem, the clicking noise was caused by the wheel bearing.

Update the current issue. The clicking cannot be eliminated as it come back again after final check before hand over the car back to me
