Front wheel rattle

I know some of you are suffering rear wheel rattle, but I have rattle on front wheel, it creak when I m running on some roughly surface road , especially when passing thru the speed bump at around 5km, it sounds like something loosen at the front axle. I took it back to BMW but technician cannot find the problem. Does anyone also have similar rattle at front wheel?

A friend of mine has the F20 118i and did have a front rattle recently, only to find it was a coin in the door pocket.
It may pay you to have a look around yourself.

Could be a stone in the spring well that rattles when certain drive conditions are used.

My wifes Suzuki swift has a clonking noise coming from behind the dash. The Suzuki dealers says that clocks and rattles aren't cover under the Suziki warrantee and they want to charge me $1500.oo to fix it. Guess what I said. We are looking at a 1er.
