156 JTD - strange wobble and noise - advice needed...
I have a strange thing happening with my 156 JTD.
The car is a 2005 model facelift and I have noticed that when I accelorate the car wobbles a little.
I thought at first it was wheel balance, but that is OK, tyre pressures, but they are all fine, I even changed all 4 tyres as it was suggested that they were shot too, but the wobble is still there.
The only way to describe it is if you have a wheel that is weighted on one side, if you turn it slowly it has no bearing atall, but the faster you turn it, there is a wobble like it is off balance.
Then form time to time when the car is driving and more so when turning corners there is a drumming knocking noise, not really looud but loud enough to hear, and it is worse if I have passengers in the car.
The car was very dificult to drive 2 days ago when I have 3 passengers in the car, so extra weight bearing down on the car but evenly.
Could it be an issue with the suspension?
I have changed all brakes on the car, top and bottom arms at the front so all is good under the car and has barely done 2000 miles since installed.
I am really not sure what is could be atall?
Could it be the drive shafts perhaps?
Any help or advice is really appreciated as I really want this fixed now.....
