Hi, just joined the forum in the hope that someone somewhere can help me out. I bought a 2001 TD4 about 6 weeks ago and all has been ok after sorting out a stuck sunroof and a cracked subframe (small dealer but he paid for the "proper" repair I got done). I hit a pothole last week and altho I was only doing about 15mph, I was going round a corner and the wheel got yanked out of my hand! Carried on driving round town for usual work and home journeys for 2 days and only when I made a longer journey on Friday night and speed and revs went up did I discover the vibration! Gear lever shakes, I feel it through the floor and my watch bracelet rattles something awful!
Local garage chap has told me it's not the propshaft, nor the chassis, has done the tracking, wheels are balanced and nothing looks bent or broken. He has had it jacked up and 'driven' and all wheels are straight and springs, suspension etc are fine.
So what is it? He doesn't appear to know - suggested maybe the diff or the transfer box but not sure. There is a little play in the driver side front driveshaft but he reckons its an outside chance of it being that altho he would change that before doing anything else.
Please tell me someone can suggest what this could be? I don't want to have a white elephant in my drive with my broken subaru (hence reason for buying landy in first place).
Thanks guys in advance
Wondered about trying to find a local (Glasgow area) landrover expert that is not a main dealer in the hope they will go 'I know what that could be' but that might be too optomistic?
