Vibration from knackered inner CV joints

Post by Toad on Thu Oct 30, 2008 12:54 pm

Right... Not exactly linked to anything exciting, but my mate's car started to make some funny noises, and given her history of letting it get a bit warm and oil escaping, I suggested she brought it round before she drives to brighton this weekend.

It's a punto, 1.2 I think, and there's a funny noise, like a loose heat sheild when you accelerate, from both sides, depending on what day it is, and what you had for breakfast. I took it for a scurry and it seems to happen just when accelerating, and does give some feedback through the whole car and steering wheel.

The wheels don't seem to wobble, and the suspension seems fairly solid, although I'm sure it's part down to worn bushes, but one driveshaft has a hell of a lot of play at the gearbox end. i've not seen anything quite like it before, so was just wondering if anyone had experienced it? Need to have a proper look in the light one weekend I think.

Id say the diff bearings are gone...they might just be noisy when under load and if theres play at the gearbox end thats another sign

That's what I did wonder. There's a fair old oil leak, which i put down to the rocker cover gasket being shot, but she can't afford the gasket, so I've not replaced it yet. But I wonder if it's gearbox oil, and that's contributed to knackered diff bearings.

All hypothesising at the moment.

Cheers for the input Graham. Smile

Right, moderate update. Forgot to mention the funny noise in reverse, and I had a call earlier to say that it wouldn't drive, she could put it in gear but it wouldn't move.

RAC have recovered her, and said that it is probably the clutch, but. I didn't notice any issue with the clutch last night...

Clutches don't just fail like that do they?

the friction material on the clutch could have fallen apart but It should have been slipping before hand Suspect

I think the gearbox has probably just **** itself.
