Bizarre Noise Coming from the Wheels/Drivetrain?

Past few days have observed a noise coming from the back of my car that sounds kind of like a clunking noise. Metal on metal almost. Very bizarre. It is at speeds in the 25-40 mph range and is pretty erratic. Listen here. Called service and will likely have it taken in but wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts?

Probably not it but you should check your lug nut torque just to be sure. Could be a lose suspension bolt too. You should definitely take it in to be checked.

Gotcha. I haven’t heard it the last 2 days lol. Unless it was something in my trunk (which I’m 99% sure it wasn’t because I moved any loose items) but I doubt that.

This issue has been resolved. Funny enough I determined it to be my license plate holder hitting my trunk in the wind. Gotta be a new one! :)
