Re: Grande Punto Grinding/Rubbing When Accelerating

Thanks Bernie. The thing that confuses me is I had the driveshaft replaced only 6 months ago so why will it have gone again? Will I be able to remove the driveshaft and fit a new bearing? Or will I need to get a whole new driveshaft? I'd much rather pay 15 for a good bearing and get my hands dirty than pay hundreds for an OEM shaft.

Never discount the fact it could have been a faulty new bearing In which case, should have been warrantied for 12 months if fitted from a garage. Worth checking with whoever fitted it to see if they can inspect it and let you know if it needs doing or not.

Re: Grande Punto Grinding/Rubbing When Accelerating

Yes brickfoot I think you're right because I've realised a few more things over the weekend. The grinding is NOT engine speed related it's road speed related. Having listened to where the noise is coming from I am now convinced it is the inner driveshaft support bearing (under the driver footwell). I will take it back to the garage I had change it and seek their opinion. Thanks again

Re: Grande Punto Grinding/Rubbing When Accelerating

Sorry to bring back a dead thread but did you get this figured out? I'm having the same exact problem, had a mechanic check it and he told me that 3 out of the 4 transmission bearings were busted or in really bad shape. Though, I am somewhat reluctant it was the transmission since the same grinding noise was produced even in neutral... any ideas?
