Help !!..Shimmy/Shake while Driving
Just got myself a 159 2.4 JTDm on a '06 plate.........while driving along in any gear i am getting a kind of scuttle shake sensation from the car!...
.... I am sure it is not wheel balance or any associated steering/suspension issues, i do not get any vibration through the steering wheel and the car does not wander and it pulls up in a straight line under braking !
It is a side to side movement of the car (biased towards the front of car) and occurs around the 2,000 to 3,000 RPM, It is possible to accelerate through it and at higher road speeds 60mph plus it appears to disappear !!!
I have been told it could be the driveshaft (something to do with a rubber bushing or such like!)
Anybody got any idea's?
Thanks, in advance, Phil.
