When i turn the steering wheel at low revs, there is a juddering noise coming from under the bonnet. Can anyone confirm that this is the tensioner? I have replaced the power steering pump but still the same problem.

Check the timing belt. It should have been changed at 60,000 miles. Sounds like you have lost some teeth on the synchronous belt resulting in lost timing. Damage to valves can occur. look under plastic cover on the end of the head for the belt
asr works in conjunction with abs.to stop a wheel it(the car)thinks is loosing grip, from spinning.By applying the brakes to the wheel that is loosing grip,so the car is applying the brake. hence the juddering. if it stops when you turn it (asr)off it must be a sensor fault.easy way is to plug in the diagnostic computer to pinpoint faulty unit. if you dont drive very enthusiastically,then turn asr off until next mot/service.get back if you need any more info ....
hi from uk may i suggest that first you do some diy checks ? check all tyres are inflated correctly ? then check all wheels are secure? if your steering wheel is not juddering? then you may not have wheel balance problem? also your problem may be one of the engine mountings have failed ie the mounting rubbers have parted from mounting plates this will cause juddering thro out car especially when taking up drive from standing and also as you accelerate and declerate if you are unsure how to check mounts may i suggest you have tyre depot or garage check and report only! as you can do replace mounts diy ? any more info ? come back if you find out fault if you wish help ? hope this helps/inspires you
this exact problem on a megane coupe is caused by a small air pipe that connects to a 2 inch wide black box that is located under the bonnet near the windscreen on the passangers side. the zigzag light indicates an electrical fault (in this case lack of compression and will affect your revs) if you find this pipe and it has snapped off. the reason for this may be that your engien is lose and moves. grab the engien with 2 hands and see if you can wobble it with allot of play. if so your engien mountings need replaceing. you may also experiance juddering in low gears
I have 2 meganes im working on at the moment both have the same problem. the electrical falt light is on coz the pipe has snapped (or come off) under the bonnet on the passangers side close to the window (theres a black box about 2 inch wide the pipe connects underneath). if I reconect the pipe and grab the engien with both hands it wobbles and the pipe pulls off. I suspect this is coz one (or all) the engien mountings are shagged. and this will be the cause of the juddering when driveing in first and second gears. solutions iv have come across for juddering involve changeing the coil pack but thats nothing to do with the problem my 2 cars have as one of them has new coils. they are 1.6 petrol, p reg and s reg
The disks may be warped, which will cause a vibration under braking. Also if it's an ABS system, the vibration is normal but only under heavy braking, and should not continue to vibrate when working properly.

these cars are really acute with there problems and this such prob is usually caused by the air filter needing changing, and full service with plugs and leads doesnt usually go a miss. when was the last time it had new oil and plugs and leads and filters?
