Re: Still trying to fix steering vibration

Here is another video in which you can clearly see the intermediate shaft bearing. IF there is a problem with the intermediate shaft, it would be something with the splines (or the female splines on...

Re: Still trying to fix steering vibration

Re: Still trying to fix steering vibration

Re: Still trying to fix steering vibration

You can see the intermediate shaft bearing in the video and it doesn't move at all (up and down or side to side). The only movement I am seeing is at the joint on the CV axle. In fairness, I...

Re: Still trying to fix steering vibration

Should I have replaced the cir clip on the Intermediate shaft when replacing the CV axle? That is the only thing I can think of or I bought a bad CV axle. What else could cause that part of the CV...

Re: Still trying to fix steering vibration

The wheel bearings were not replaced, the CV axles were. Wheel bearings have not been suspected by anyone who has looked at the car to this point.

Hose part number

Does anyone have the part number for the small 8 inch hose that is for the coolant return line for the turbo? Mine sprung a leak today while driving. :(
