Postby martel54 » Sun Jun 12, 2011 9:26 am

the car is on a 53 plate on the left hand front passenger wheel feels like a wobble,shake, or judder, the track rod end has just been replaced,been re tracked also all wheels balanced and the wheels have been swapped from front to back and back to front to eliminate it been the tyres. its been to two garages and cant seem to identify the problem,a few people that we have spoken to has said it could be the driveshaft. the shake or whatever it is starts at about 40mph-53 then comes out of it but you can only feel it when accelorating at them speeds if your just coasting then you cant feel it hope someone can help me find out what it is thanks in advance richard

Start by checking the anti roll bar bushes, then the subframe mounting bracket on that side. Check the shock absorber whilst your at it and also the tie rod locating bushes which are just in front and above the anti roll bar brackets. Also check c/v joints, and finally check the discs are not warped and that the caliper is fitted correctly.If this fails to find the problem, then for safety I would highly reccommend you take the vehicle to a Renault specialist. Your life, and that of others, is more important than your bank balance!
