Hi folks

Been a while since posted, because my X-type has been running really sweet. 2005 Sport Premium saloon 2.2d.

However, in recent months there has been a noticable vibration in the car. Comes through as a slight steering wobble (especialy when accelerating or braking hard) or just when sitting 65-70 ish MPH. Also feels like coming up through the seat, like the whole car rumbling.

Now, I've has wheels balanced so many times. I've even got a set of brand new alloys 4-5 months ago.
I've had all the balancing, alignment and all that set by a local garage who sponsor and work on a local amateur rally car so they know how to set a car up.

Just wondering if there's any clues or this rings a bell with anyone, before I go back and start spending shed loads of deeper investigations.

Thank you.

Sounds very much like the front driveshaft inner cv joints to me.

You probably will have to change both front drive shafts.
