Vibration following new clutch fitted.

Postby Svb1780 » Wed Mar 14, 2018 12:26 am

Fitted a new clutch last weekend and it's much better so really pleased. Van is 75hp 12 plate with 36k on the clock ex BT. I generally only do long drives as its a Hobby van. Since its been fitted it has developed an awful vibration around 2k rpm under load in gears 3 a little in 4 and really bad in 5th. I don't hammer it on the roads but bothered about this really bad noise the vibration and further damage. Any advice welcome thanks in advance.

Update. Still non the wiser I'm sure it's the clutch as it seems to stop instantly when I dip it. Also of note it really only appears around 50mph when accelerating in 5th. Any Thoughts?

Dipping the ckutch removes the load from the drive train, so it's not necessarily the clutch, it could be something in the drive train from the clutch to the wheels.

If you are careful you can jack the van up and fit axle stands and get an asssistant to run the engine in gear and see if you can see/hear anything obvious from looking whilst it is turning all the drive train.

Thanks for the help time and advice. With regret that's a bit beyond me. I'll book it in somewhere. With Thanks.
