    Default Engine & Gearbox Mounting

    Hello,

    I have the 1.9 CDTI Signum 2006, I have only had it three months but I have noticed that when in higher gears such as 5th or 6th if you let the revs off quickly and put back on quickly it feels like the engine/gearbox is moving. Is this common, does it need seeing to?

    Cheers, John.

    Is there like a judder through the car and a slight banging noise? Same thing happens in mine. Put it down to a worn flywheel and will be sorted out when it eventually gives up.

    No, there's no juddering, just a "thumping" backwards and forwards (depending on accelaration or decelaration). It reminds me of worn engine mountings in a mini i had 20 years ago!

    Thanks, John.

    That's what I meant, just couldn't think how to say it! Can feel it more in the passenger footwell which makes sense seen as the gearbox is on that side of the car.
