    Hi I’ve got a vibration when at road speed turning left only (kind of like the vibration you get when rear diff mounts are gone) but it’s only when turning left plus I’ve just swapped the mounts out today and it’s the same.

    Only happens when coasting so if you press the throttle it doesn’t happen.

    Any ideas?

    I'd be checking the CVs (inner and outer) on the front drive shafts.

    I'd also be checking the tyres are all matching and pumped to the same/correct pressure and doing a 1 wheel up test on the VCU.

    Thankyou fir your reply, would vcu issue not be the same for both left and right? There’s no tying up either on full lock so I’m pretty sure vcu is fine.

    cv is a good shout , proper weird one it’s got to be said, don’t cvs usually click on lock if knackered

    It depends on the state of the tyres as to whether an overly tight VCU would show up in 1 or both directions.

    Definitely its normal for outer CVs do click when they are worn, but Freelander does appear to have its own characteristics and I'm not sure if inner CVs would click or vibrate. I believe the inner and outer CVs are different types. If the inner CV has caused its support bearing to begin failing it would vibrate, but hopefully if it is the CV its not got that bad yet.

    I’ll Chuck the front tyres on back and see if it changes anything. All the tyres are continental and all worn exactly the same, it’s not vcu and soon as you put foot down the vibration goes, if it was vcu it wouldn’t make any difference I don’t think.

    maybe give the cv and wobble and see, weird one this
