You may have damaged the CV flange cover or debris in the joint itself causing the streering wheel to vibrate the faster you go and the more load you give it. Open the CV joint and inspect for any debris or contaminant eating the ball bearing inside.

WHY AM I getting vibration at low speeds as i accelerate on my renault megane scenic 2007 1.9cc


Hello friend. Some possible causes ? 1) Wheel not balanced / wheel weight lnocked off. 2) Steering joints worn badly. 3) Brake disc(s) distorted through overheating. 4) Constant Velocity Joint (CV Joint) worn out.
You need to try and locate from WHERE the vibration is coming from, difficult I know while car is moving but it will help to narrow down (front, rear,. left , right ? ) what is wrong. Could save you lots of cash at the Workshop.

balance on tail shaft was what? it sounds like the drive shaft and universal joints yokes were not scribe marked to be put in the same place causing the drive shaft to be unbalanced there are weights on the drive shaft EX. little metal bars welded to it try taking it out and rotating the shaft a bolt hole at a time or a universal joint cap + at a time to see if it helps also the universal joint could not be seated properly causing intense vibration at take off please respond and be much more specific so I can possibly help you figure it out with out actually seeing the truck LATER MAN!

Why would my steering wheel vibrate back and fourth


Obviously you have several things can cause this:
1) Bent Wheel,
2) Loose or Missing Lug Nuts,
3) Lost Balance Weight(s),
4) Wheels Badly Out of Balance,
5) Bad Front Wheel Bearings.
6) CV Joints badly worn.
Basically, anything to do with proper balance of the front wheels can cause this. Usually this condition exists somewhere around 45 MPH +/- about 5 MPH. Have a reliable ASE Technician check it out as soon as possible. If a wheel were to come off at any speed it could be instant disaster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Being a front wheel drive car, the CV Joints could be worn out. You don't give the Miles on your vehicle. Typically CV Joints and Hub Kits (Wheel Bearings) do wear out. If you have in excess of 100,000 miles replace what needs it. Get an estimate First and consider if is worth fixing as a 1999 Breeze may not be worth the investment of the required repairs.

I have a 2005 Honda CRV and get an intermittent vibration in the front end when going anywhere from 35-49 mph. Usually on straight road. Lasts for say 10 seconds then stops. New tires. Alignment if...


best guess is to have the CV joints checked, make sure that the boots are good in the outside joints. but it could also be the inside joint just has to much wear. you are at the right mileage for either to be the problem, the next time you get the vibration put a little pressure on the steering wheel in one direction then the other and see if the vibration goes away if it does suspect the CV joints. and don't just replace the outside joint replace both half shafts. if the vibration does not change or go away when you put pressure on the steering wheel then suspect lower ball joints.

My car vibrates the steering system is in good condition, has a proper alignment, proper balancing, changed two engine support and perform a repair in the stump of the left front wheel


Hi I am Vortash the main things that cause wheel Vibration are
1/ wheel balancing ( thrown weights mostly )
2/ wheel bearings
3/ susppension arms
4/ ball joints
5/ track rod ends worn
6/ steering shims loose
7/ damaged cv joints or drive shafts (transverse engines )
8/ Prop shaft missalignment (rear wheel drives )
9/ and this is the most popular one tyres not fitted correctly (twisted )
10/ unlikely but more common than you might think Buckled wheels pot hole at 40mph do a lot of damage ..
hope this gives you some ideas and good luck with finding a solution regards Vortash
