get your wheels balanced
Funny, I just talked to the service manager yesterday about this at Homer Skelton in Bartlett. He said that he's only heard of one other vehicle with this problem in Memphis and that it was fixed by force balancing. He said that they wouldn't be able to verify the condition because the legal speed limit is 70 and it occurs above the speed limit. I'd have to stay there and take the service tech out in the car myself to show him what it did.Rocket Rodent, can you please let us know which dealership you are using? My dealer is Homer Skelton in Bartlett, TN. The service manager refuses to acknowledge that there's a problem. His last feedback to me was "Sir, you have to understand that this is a sports car and is bound to have some vibrations" Baloney! And this is typical of the patronising attitude with which they have treated me since I reported the problem last year. Unfortunately it just takes too much time and effort so I just about gave up back in April when the force balancing didn't work. I've been re-energised by (a) the new issue of the car not starting and (b) finding this forum where others are having the same problem.
We have a few shops up here that can do that. However the instant they see an Aluminum or CF drive shaft in there, they'll void the warranty. (Yes this is on the project horizon though.)Would probably be faster to just have it balanced at a drive line shop.
I know one up here, they charge like $250 for a custom shaft.
probably about $50~$100 to rebalance a shaft.
