vibration through steering wheel


Recommended Posts

Ongoing...................

 

I've discovered a vibration from about 40mph upwards through the steering wheel which gets worse the faster i go.

 

So far i have:

 

Changed the tension rod bushes to poly ones....no difference.

Checked each individual piston in each caliper is working.....yes it is.

Had the discs checked for warping......slightly out on one worse on the other had them skimmed..........still no difference.

 

The car is now at Power Engineering who skimmed the discs and they are doing further investigation tomorrow.

 

They've also checked the wheel bearings and both fronts are ok.

 

Anyone got any other ideas???????????????

 

Cheers Alex

hi alex

 

i had the same problem with my 300.

 

checked every aspect of the car, all bushes, all rods, all control arms, etc.........

 

turned out to be the wheel balancing!!!!!!!!!!

 

only a few grams out, got them done and it was fine. was scratching my head for weeks!!!!!!

 

check the wheel balance with a good company.

Tell me about it and that's what i thought Si, the company seemd to think the prop shaft was something to do with it and when i mentioned upper and lower links and bushes they wanted to check the run out on the hub???????

 

I wish i could find a garage in London i can trust that really has some knowledge of our cars.

 

I do need to check the two bolts on the other end of the torsion bars because when i put them in i tightened them when the car was on jacks and should have done it when the car was on the road....

 

Maybe i should also check the geometry????
