    Default Vectra c cdti steering wheel vibrates all the time

    After some advice please.
    My car is a vectra c cdti 150 bhp still in warranty and on idle the steering has a vibration and is also felt through the clutch pedal.

    On giving the vehicle some revs it dies of but still evident.

    Vauxhall dealer x2 tell me same as any other vectra but a bloke on my street has same car and his don't do it.

    My car has 25k miles the bloke on street 75k.

    The car had a dual mass fly wheel at 20k I'm told by the dealer nothing wrong with this,

    hope some one can help point me in the right direction as 1 dealer tell me nowt wrong, the other tested it all or glow plugs, egr valve and what ever else still say nowt wrong,

    I have reported it direct to vauxhall and there not bothered either

    Look forward to the replies

    regards

    Go back to the Vx dealer and ask them to show you two cars on their sales forecourt that also do it.

    Yep I'm ringing them tomorrow, they can have 3 the blokes on my street.
    I've thought about selling it but why should I lose a load of money on it.

    Sounds like an engine mount is failing and passing the vibe's into the cabin to me.

    I knowcwhat will happen same answer I have had for everything else, same as any other vectra.

    UPDATE.....

    Had mine booked into the dealers again today...for exactly the same problem....remedy..new flywheel fitted...nomore vibration throught the wheel or drivers seat.
    Not bad considering less than 1000miles ago it had dmf/clutch/slave.

    Can only assume the vibrations transfering through the gearbox or engine onto other areas to cause the wheel to vibrate...

    Definatly all gone though so god knows.

    Interesting, mine is vibrating through the steering wheel, and i only had my DMF etc sorted a few months ago (bout 8k ago)

    I found it odd to be honest but i know the service manager so i know he's telling me it as it is...like he said yours has only been on about 4-weeks so must of been faulty..

    What he also picked up on was...when letting the clutch out he said your getting like a jerking movement forward momenterily before the clutch engages..he said the flywheels at fault so it could of been that little slack that on idle caused the vibration.

    Not saying its going to work for eveybody but mine was bad(wheel vibrating)and theres nothing now so can only go with the flywheel as the issue.

    I also had clanking on startup and a lot of engine movement..if that helps.
