re vibration ???


Two suggestions from having BTDT with this car:

1 - possible bent wheel - try rotating the front wheels to the back and
see if the vibration seems to come more from the front or the back. If
it changes you should check the wheel - it could be bent laterally, e.g.
doens't appear out of round to the eye but it is.

2 - wheel bearings - when they start to go bad, they can give that
feeling. Try jacking the car up (in N) and check for free rotation.
There should be no 'grainy' feel, and no resistance except for some
resistance from the brake pads, but it should be uniform resistance.

90 90q20V (sold last year) went through similar problems - both bearings
and bent wheeel :(.
