    "tinkling" sound from rear drivers side wheel well

    I have noticed a strange metallic "tinkling" sound coming from the rear of the car. It sounds like it is coming from the driver's side rear wheel well. I checked for any nails in the tire, removed and retorqued the bolts. looked for anything scraping the wheel or rotor.
    It is noticed when starting up at a slow roll in neutral or first, I'm not sure but I think I dont hear it while in 2nd going around the same speed. It also returns when coming to a stop while in neutral.
    It sounds like the frequency of the sound corresponds with the turning of the wheel.
    Please help me as I would love to avoid a trip to the dealer.
    I have heard of rocks/pebbles getting stuck in the caliper but dont know exactly what this would sound like
    Thanks

    Pebbles get supposedly stuck (trapped) between the rotor and it's backing plate. Happens on my BMW. Never happened on my Porsche(s). I drive the cars on the same gravel road. You sure it's not the exhaust system expanding/contracting during warmup/cooldown?

    Re: "tinkling" sound from rear drivers side wheel

    Thanks for the tip, I actually was able to find the culprit today.
    Somehow, the nut from the wheel valve stem had come loose and was rolling around inside the tire. once the car gained momentum it would get stuck and the noise would stop.
    Thanks again.

    LOL. Glad that it's solved.

    The old loose-lug-nut-in-the-hub-cap puzzle strikes again!

    Re: "tinkling" sound from rear drivers side wheel

    How you were able to find that is beyond me! You must have really good ears! I'm deaf so that doesn't help!

    Re: "tinkling" sound from rear drivers side wheel

    trust me it was loud enough for anyone to hear.
    it was a metal nut rolling around and bouncing inside the wheel.
    I usually dont pay attention too and dont mind little creaks or normal noises associated with the car but this was very annoying and noticeable to my passengers and anyone that was driving next to me...
