Re: drive shafts!!!!?????

Ste sorry no one has replied yet!

I'm afraid I've never come across this problem on the Doblo, a wobble would indicate to me a driveshaft problem or something after the gearbox. It could also be a warn or burnt out bearing. Do you hear any whirring coming from the transmission?

Re: drive shafts!!!!?????

I know it sounds stupid but are wheels balanced?

And check bearings!

Tyres out of shape ???
sounds silly but I thought I had a major problem on my old Peugeot and it turned out to be one mis-shaped front tyre... caused a major wobble

Re: drive shafts!!!!?????

Mine had the same problem wobble at about 40mph when going round a corner. Garage said it could be driveshafts plus change all four tyres and rims.

Re: drive shafts!!!!?????

Wheels were the other thing I was going to suggest but it's normally only steel wheels that get bent or distorted so it's probably not that then

Re: drive shafts!!!!?????

Hi Brand new here, but I have the same problom on a cargo 1.9 jtd sx. Left hand bends starts the wobble from 40 mph up to 55mph, also on acceleration, the harder the acceleration the worse the wobble. I have swapped all the tyres around, no change. local garage suspects nearside front drive shaft and there is certainly vibration under the passanger footwell. The garage was hoping to find a driveshaft supplier who could swap out the shafts, but can only find rebuilders, not good as it means my van is out of action for 10 days. Having read this thread though it looks like drive shafts may not be the problem. My van is on 05 with 65k miles, are the other wobblers of similar vintage/miles?

The wobble disapears as you reach 60mph, is this the same as the rest of you?

I did think that there was a lot of play to the rear most engine/gearbox mount. It is the one underneath near the middle of the van/car. Not sure if that is a cause or a symptom though.

Not sure what to try next....

Re: drive shafts!!!!?????

Sorted it... The passenger side drive shaft inside joint was the problem. New shaft and the cup that it sits in needs to be replaced. Parts were around 200 with an hours labour to fit it..

Re: drive shafts!!!!?????

Anybody done the O/S drive shaft on the Doblo? Is the bearing in the middle easy to remove. Any details on the removal of it would help. Thanks.
