Slight judder on acceleration 25mph up
« on: March 05, 2017, 04:52:27 AM »
every time i set off there is a judder like shaking side to side
i had this 2 years ago and it was a worn inner drive joint so i fitted a new complete driveshaft (cured)
but its doing it again so i changed the other drive shaft for a new complete one
sadly this has not cured it  >:(
i am using Euro Car Parts aftermarket complete drive shafts
are they no good ? and is the first one worn so soon ?
anybody had this issue ?
cheers

i would be checking the tyres for being twisted;  breaking up internally so the carcass starts to de-laminate itself---causes tread  or sidewalls to lose their shape. 

1; get some one to watch tyres as you crawl forward--looking for the car moving sideways

2; jack car up and spin each wheel by hand---you will see if tyres twisted

3;  check driveshafts again---get new ones from J &R in Birmingham  (dead cheap)

Wheels all balaced correctly?
I had an A6 that would wobble like hell at 38-45mph after a weight came off after a garage 'washed it by hand'.

I was also going to say is it definitely not a wheel balance/ tyre issue, or a buckle in one of the rims? I've got a side to side 'wobble' through the steering wheel at the moment, though I can also feel it when just coasting and not accelerating so I know that it's not driveshaft related. I'm hoping it's just wheel balance and I've also got a nearside front tyre which is worn out so I hope it's one of those things but with the state of the roads and pot holes I fear I may find a damaged wheel when I take a look.

P.S, if the cheap driveshafts from Euro car parts that you refer to are those Q-drive ones I'm sure people here have posted to say that they're not much good!

If the usual stuff like tyres etc are all ok,I wouldn't rule out the driveshaft at fault again just because it has already been changed. Especially if it's the same wobble you had before changing shaft previously.

My steering wheel wobble actually turned out to be down to the nearside front tyre, I knew it was worn out but I never expected it to cause such a wobble- especially at low speed- through the steering wheel. To be fair I should have changed it before now as it is completely bald on the inner edge, but the way that the steering wheel was wobbling I was expecting to find a buckled wheel. Fitted my spare (with a decent tyre) and the wobble is completely gone! There was a bit of a rubber 'ridge' which had formed on the inside edge of the tyre at the top of the sidewall so maybe it was something to do with that, but still, I'm surprised! At least I don't need to get a replacement wheel!  woohoo
