Front end judder under acceleration.


I have a 20v 2.4 JTD, and over the past few months my car has been juddering under acceleration. It feels as though the front end it shaking from side to side.

This only happens when accelerating, and not when the car is cruising at a constant speed. Id say its worse between 2500 and 3500 revs.

I have had both driveshafts replaced within the last 8 months, however I did recently discover a split in the inner drivers side CV gaiter where all the grease had come out - this was repacked with grease, but could this have damaged the shaft causing the juddering?

Could it also possibly be the clutch or flywheel - bearing in mind it only happens under acceleration?

swap the wheels front to back and see if the vibration moves. if so it's either tyres or wheels at fault.

If it turns out not to be the tyres or wheels its probabaly a driveshaft
