help needed - vibration qu

Recommended Posts

I have a UK 2002 996 Targa and the car had developed a vibration and I'd like to know what people suggest to help me identify the cause and fix it.

At all speeds, though naturally more noticeable at speed, a can feel a vibration throughout the car. It's not too severe but is noticeable through the wheel and can be felt through the seat when accelerating or at a constant speed.

I had my wheels refurbished a few months ago and new rear tyres. The wheels have been balanced twice in the last month, once by the refurb co and by a separate company; interesting each company said it was out of balance and the other hadn’t done the balancing properly!

I have 18” split rim sport design wheels. Has anyone heard of these being buckled during a refurb (they were split to do this)?

Any ideas what is the most logical order to investigate further. without racking up too much cost?

Does anyone live near south Cheshire and have a spare set of wheels I could fit and do a short test drive?

Many thanks

You could always rule the tyres and wheels out by swapping with another Carrera owners for a few minutes. It might seem like a lot of trouble but it would tell you for sure if the problem is the tyres and wheels.
