C5 2.2hdi automatic/engine vibration problem

Post by smleighton » 02 Jul 2014, 22:21

Has anybody any idea what would cause my car to occasionally vibrate not sure if its the engine or gearbox on acceleration in any gear more noticable in 1st and 2nd hardly noticable in 3rd and 4th but it's still there, it can do it under gentle acceleration as well as under hard acceleration but it doesn't happen all the time. Cheers every one

Difficult to say without experiencing the fault, but the inner driveshaft joints can cause a lot of vibration when worn.

Checked over the drivers inner drive shaft and it was badly worn I thought I would have to change the auto box. Taken the drive shaft off and got it overhauled £40 and refitted it.No more vibration job done :-D
