Vibrations !


Recommended Posts

I have noticed while driving on the motorway/bypass if i am around the 70 mph mark the steering wheel starts to vibrate a little more than i would expect it too.Is this normal and if not what could be the problem?I have a 1998 1.8 freelander exi.

Have you checked the tyre wear and pressures and had the tracking adjusted?



As Blippie said (and you can see also in some similar recent posts), a bad tyre/rim may cause incredibly strong vibrations at certain speed. If the wheel causing problems is on the front axle, it is worse. I was once driving a Renault Kangoo, one of the front wheels had the rim (of steel) slightly bent (barely visible); the result: over 60km/h it was very difficult to keep the steering wheel straight, it was vibrating like hell.

Wheels must be perfectly balanced.
