Clicking/clunking from rear - SOLVED

Hello everyone,

In the Past couple of weeks the car developed sort of a clicking/clunking sound from the rear of the car, it is a 6spd. I Can only hear it when slowly reversing or accelerating from a stop. I've seen a few threads discussing this issue but none actually making a clear determination as to what these sounds are a resultant of. I've seen from my research that it could be one or multiple of the following: diff, heat shield, driveshaft, guibo, cv axle, etc. I've added a video to hopefully narrow down on what it could be.


If it is the DS, I figured I'd just go with a carbon one-piece, but want to save until next year to get one. (recently purchased my first home) don't want to spend the money on the M currently as it is not the daily driver. But if I wanted to go on a spirited a drive or two would I be risking harm to any other components?

Hopefully you can hear over the exhaust

This can be closed. Little bit of an overreaction. Definitely is something in the dust shield causing this. Determined by pushing the car with it off back and forth and I could locate the sound coming from the wheel. Moderators this thread can be closed...
