    Default Does your Vectra vibrate (1.9 cdti 150ps)

    Hi
    I have just bought a used Vectra and it had the DMF & Clutch replaced under warranty (2 month Arnold Clark warranty) because it was rattleing when i pressed the clutch in a bit.

    Now my problem seems to be when the car is sitting idle there seems to be a bit of vibration through the steering wheel and feels like the seat is vibrating and also the keyring on my key shake as well.

    Would this be normal for the 1.9 cdti or does this seem a bit much and also what could be causing this?

    Cheers

    It could be caused by worn rubber in one or more engine mounts.

    My 2006 hatch also started vibrating after DMF and clutch replacement. When they do the replacement they have to put the gearbox out of the way (obviously) and I think they also lower the engine a bit which means they mess arround with the mounts too. I noticed though that when it warmed up it stopped vibrating to the extent that I was not noticing it.

    My car wobbled and a lot of people are really sceptical when I tell them that resetting the electronics (disconnecting the battery for an hour) solved my problem. This is true and it has been 1 year and 10k miles and never wobbled again to date.

    I think they had the battery disconnected when replacing as everything was reset. Might take the car back to them to get it checked. As said in previous post it seems to get better as it get warm
