milky Posted April 12, 2009 Share Posted April 12, 2009 Evening all, My first post on here, so hello.. and apologies if this is a bit long and needy for a first post. I have a problem with my freelander I would appreciate some help with please. We bought our Freebie a couple of weeks ago as we needed something comfortable and economical for a bit of long distance cruising. Up until now it has done this very well, but on the way back from Scotland yesterday, it developed a shocking vibration at about 70mph/4k revs. This was 30 miles from home fortunately, so I limped back along the M54 at 60mph. I have searched the forum and found some info relating to this problem which I believe could be related to a loose IRD mounting bracket? But there's something else.... What concerns me more is the vibration which occurs between 2.5k and 3.5k revs in all gears. It's a bit different to the 70mph vibration and I can only describe it as like going over a set of cats eyes.. just a repeating thud which gets quicker along with the revs. The problem does not occur in neutral. I'm worried I may have knackered something by ploughing on yesterday. Has anyone heard of this before? And could anyone recommend a decent LR mechanic near to Telford in Shropshire? Thanks in advance for any assistance Mike. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
