hello

I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.

non BMW wheel bearings can cause this, a defective BMW wheel bearing could cause it, or backward installation of the bearing also.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle

That does not change the answer, but it is unlikely two could be defective. Also, unless they have high end bmw diagnostic equipment, they can't know if one or both rear abs sensors are not reading properly.
