Sounds like flywheel its one of them type with a rubber insert ,check the front pulley as well as thats rubber bonded as well ,if it shakes at 60mph then its the diff unit .Tell about this problem i know i had one that turned out to be the diff unit and the suns and planets were damaged when some heavy handed mechanic pushed the frive shafts in.

SOURCE: how do i replace a offside front lower suspension arm ball joint

You need to get or rent a ball joint splitter, maybe $20? or so to buy.   Some parts stores (autozone does this, one reason i recommend them, but other stores may also) will rent you some tools for "free" when you buy parts there .. they take a big deposit in case  you bolt ... but give it all back for return of the tool in good condition.  
 It's easy ... if you know how to work on suspension .. if not, get a Haynes manual for your car from part store, amazon or haynes.com for around $20,  the blood and busted knuckles you save due to reading it will be worth the money ;~).

SOURCE: dash shakes from vibration 30kph to 65kph.. 1991

that could cause the vibration but I have also seen brand new tires out of the blue seperate or through wheel weights and cause dashes to vibrate so I would eliminate that completly from the equation.It wont cost you anything if where you had them installed does lifetime balanceing.

SOURCE: Bottom ball joint worn on steering of 03 Renault

if your not an eperence mechanic the best and easy way is to change the whole bottom arm this is alittle more money but alot quicker and easyer for a non mechanic. first you will need to remove the ball joint from the hub the best way to do this is with forse and a hammer . Then you will need to remove the 2 botls that holed the arm to the subframe then the arm should drop out you may need to help it with a hammer lol. And just reverse what you did to fit the new arm making sure to fit the ball joint back into the hub last .

1970 ford f250 shakes real bad when I let off the gas. Any ideas I'm stumped


it depends what shakes ? if it only dose it when your slowing right down without braking then it could be an engine mount. if your braking it could be many things from warped disks to track rod ends/ball joints/loose wheel bearings. try and trace the shake. front right-left/steering wheel/back right -left.checks to do are,jack car up and hold the top and bottom of the wheel and shake it/there should be no movement/hold the sides of the wheel and shake it/there should be no movement ( on all wheels ) grab engine and shake it while looking at both sides ( checking engine mounts ) shaking can be caused by a number of things even bad shockers. good luck

What make a car to shake whn driving


It completely depends what other underlying issues there are. But there are a few things you can check...

Is the steering wheel shaking as well? If so it could be a wheel balancing issue or bearings, or something else steering related.

If the steering wheel isn't shaking it could be your engine mounts, lack of oil, worn bearings, problems with the driveshaft.

The Haynes manual for Renault Meganes are a good start, at the back of the book it has all of the fault finding things you can do. Almost all of what I have suggested will need to be checked by a good mechanic.

Right front side wobbling real bad. someone said something about some kind of "arms" connected to the tires. what are they called?


Lower control arms. There are two bushings that are at the frame, if these are gone then it is possible for it to wobble. I would also check the wheel bearing and ball joint. To check these lift the tire off the ground. For the bearing grab the tire top and bottom push it in and out, if there is any movement the bearing is worn. If these are worn enough they to will cause a wobble. For the lower ball joint have someone put a 2 X 4 under the tire and lift as you watch the ball joint. if it moves up and down in the socket it is bad. All these together can cause a significant wobble. The lower control arm mounts to the frame and the lower ball joint is mounted to the lower control arm at the tire and the bearing is the part that holds the tire on.

The bolts connecting the driveshaft to the gearbox can it be fixed without replacing the gearbox? and how can i do this?


jack up car, remove wheels,ball joint, cv joint so the driveshaft hangs free. jack up engine a small bit then remove engine mount and lingage, lower the sub frame a small bit for room them let the engine down slowly, this will give you enough space to remove the bolt from the box. it a good bit of work so take your time and be safe.

How do you remove the front axle to get the engine and transmission out


This is a generalised approach for most front wheel drive vehicles.
The front suspension strut needs to be unbolted from the control arm before the driveshaft can be removed.
First off, loosen the driveshaft nut(large nut in the centre of the wheel). These are very tight and usually require at least a 30 or 32mm deep wall socket with a torque wrench to remove. You will probably need some help as the car will move as soon as you put force on that nut. Best solution is have someone step on the brakes or put the car in top gear with the parking brake engaged.(This will not work on an automatic)
With the driveshaft nuts removed put the vehicle on axle stands so that the front wheels are clear off the ground. Do not use 2 jacks or bricks to do this. Be sure to chock the rear wheels and engage the parking brake.
Remove the front wheels. If you forgot to loosen the wheel nuts before jacking the car up, once again have your unfortunate assistant step on the brakes so you can loosen them.
Have a look at the lower control arm (Sort of a triangular shaped arm between the body of the car and the hub carrier. It connects to the hub carrier by way of a ball joint. If you're lucky the ball joint will be bolted to the control arm which is easy to remove, else it has to be undone by way of the single bolt on the hub carrier. The ball joint is difficult to remove at this point and needs a special tool to force it out of its seat. Hammering is definately not recommended and levering against the CV joint can cause damage to the CV.
Once done the hub carrier can be pulled away from the car to give you the free space to pull the outer end of the driveshaft out of the hub carrier. The inner end of the driveshaft clips into the gearbox and can be pulled or levered out with some effort.(hopefully the gearbox has been drained before this point as there may be some spillage of gearbox fluid/oil as soon as the shaft is removed from the gearbox).) Once the drive shafts are free the engine/gearbox combination can be removed. Reassembly is the reverse of removal, but remember to torque the driveshaft nut to the correct setting with a torque wrench. After reassembly have the wheel alignment set.
Hopefully I dont step on any copyright toes. Below is from a Haynes workshop manual.

Side to side wheel play


It could be an indication of a bad wheel bearing assembly. Did you check the lug nuts to be sure they are tight? It could also be the tie rod assembly. I would take off the wheel and try to move the just the hub assembly. Do you hear any screeching/squealing noises? Any popping while you are driving? Are your tires wearing? All these are classic signs of a bad wheel bearing. Any decent tire/auto shop can put your car on a lift and check the wheel bearings.

Renault clio problem


First check to see if the driveshafts are turning, they are the things that stick out either side of the gearbox. start engine put car in gear. and let the clutch up, if you have no drive, open the bonnet and see if the gearbox end of the driveshaft or the wheel end of the driveshaft is moving. if one or the other is (remember to look both sides of the gearbox 2 driveshafts) you have a driveshaft or hub fault. If all is well and nothing is loose or moving the problem is either clutch or internal to the gearbox. this will require removale of the gearbox. approx 5 hours labour remove and refit plus parts required on inspection.
