    I think I've noticed a vague tremble on the front nearside for example leaving a roundabout to take a left turn and a slight acceleration at the same time. I say I think because it's over before it began if you know what I mean - just the vaguest of wheel tremble on acceleration at 20-25 mph and climbing for a mere one second or so and not every time. Tyre pressure? wheel balance or ball joint? or drive shaft? Just wondering how I can check or should I ignore it? 2009 TDV8.

    Swap the tyres left to right and re-take the trip around the roundabout ... see if you can get it to do it again, while your changing the wheels, give them a good shake test top and bottom to check the wheel bearings ...

    The suspension checks you'll have to put it up anyway ...

    May not be safe to swap wheels left to right as many tyres are directional, safe to swap front to rear though.

    I think I might have changed the problem-definition in hindsight - it's been so long anyway...........
    Though I was raised to believe that it is better to give than receive........

    Just realised I was even more confused than I realised. I was going by your name and hadnt looked at your location. Now I know why you're taking left turns off a roundabout . Oh well, wrong again, I'll go do 100 lines......... check location tenor (2).gif
