Question about BMW Cars & Trucks
!!!You need to get this checked out NOW!!!
The most obvious leak on that area of the car is the BRAKE LINES. Is the car left or right hand drive?
If you can safely see under the car use a torch to see where the leak is coming from. Fluids can travel across bits of bodywork before it drips.
if it is near the sides of the car it could be brake fluid. If it is nearer the centre line of the car it could be gearbox or diff oil.
Please comment below with information on what you can see and I'll try to help more.

SOURCE: BMW 318 E36 rear suspention
i believe there was a recall on the bmw 318 e36 for there rear suspention being improperly installed or wrong dealer numbers for parts was put on vehicle
this is from a worn or wrong type shock that was placed on the vehicle and your vehicles tires are hitting the wheel well

SOURCE: there is a water leak
I am the original owner of camry xle 1998 with wet floors. In 2000 I had drivers side door seal leaking at welt. Removed old door seal and new weather strip on drivers side installed. The door panel was never wet, but wet at bottom of door where there are drain holes...slowly leaking under carpet.
In 2001 later water again. Coming from overflowing A/C evaporator-drain plugged/ tank full of debris. Removed evaporator, cleaned + drain cleaned.
In 2003, driver door seal against window rotted. Removed door panel and found leak at window belt molding at the mirror joint inside + out. Lots of mold under carpet needed to replace! Made a fuss at dealers for reacurring problem and they replaced the carpet for free.

Jack up that side of the car and turn the wheels by hand to narrow down where the noise is comming from. You may have binding of brakes, if you are driving slow down the road and let the steering wheel go does the car pull to one side ? does it get worse if you touch the brake ? If it does, check the front.

the fluid is most likely a leaking shock absorber. the rattling is the loss of fluid charge and most likely occurs going over bumps. I recommend that both be replaced.
