Vibration - steering column 147
3-4 weeks ago I started to hear a vibration noise in and around the steering column area. It's got progessivly worse to the point where it's driving me insane. It happens a low speeds, 30 - 40mph, almost constantly. I can also recreate it whilst stationery by hitting the accelerator hard and letting it return to idle. It sounds metalic, like something is just buzzing off something under the steering cowling.
Iv'e read lots on the site rearding vibrations but can't find a similar one.
I took it to Alfa yesterday, took a spin with a technician and recreated it for him. They removed the steering cowling and fuse cover, tighened all bolts and found a loose bracket. Lubricated everything up etc and tested it several times, at the cost of £77.
As soon as I took it home, exactly the same noise, no different. In fact they made things worse by overtightening something around the steering column as it makes a rubbing sound when doing a full lock.
Anyway, it's going back again in the morning. Hopefully they can fix it second time around.
Anyone out there had a similar vibration problem?
