      Chris:

      You might have a steering fluid leakage, I had the same problem, I was aware
      of it when I heard the rattle noise, which gets louder when steering, you'll
      have to check and seal the fluid reservoir and hoses, hopefully it'll be an
      easy fix.

      As for the plastic disc in the passengers door (where the plastic lock/unlock
      shuold be), I have it on my 84 528i, I thought it was a good do it yourself
      replacement done by the former owner, but now I guess it seems it has some
      purpose (??). Ocasionally when I lock the doors one of the following 2 things
      happen: 1) All doors unlock right after I lock them, 2) back seat door does
      not respond to central locking (so I just turn the key to unlock all and then
      lock again and then all doors lock properly (uhh?).

      I'd also appreciate some insights to correct this problem.

      Thanks,

      Daniel
