    Eek Shaking steering wheel

    Hi,

    My signum has developed a steering wheel shake that starts at around 30mph. It sometimes fades away and other times gets quite violent.

    I'm aware that the brake discs are slighlty pitted in places - a friend of a friend has suggested that this might be the cause but I'm dubious. The tyres are also going to need changing soon and i'm wondering if they could be a factor.

    I only bought the car on the weekend and didn't notice the shake on the test drive or on the way home. The dealer's about 100 miles away so don't really want to take it back unless I need to as it's a pain in the posterior!

    Any ideas would be appreciated!

    Cheers!

    Go and get the wheels balanced they are very sensitive to balancing if a weight comes off or its slightly wrong this will happen.

    genius - I told it a monster lived in the garage and if it was a naughty car and got up in the night the monster would come and eat it.....

    more than likely to be a tyre out of shape at such a low speed, wheel balancing can happen aswell but more at higher speeds, hth
