    The Wobbles

    Hi Everyone,

    I own a 205 GTi, and lately it's started to wobble and shake when I go around left hand corners. I recently got the left-hand driveshaft replaced to try and solve the problem, but it still does it. Changing the wheels around doesn't make a difference either.

    You can feel the car wobbling and the gear stick wobbles left and right.

    Does anyone know what's wrong? We can't seem to find whats causing it.

    I'd be inclined to go with Peter on teh engine mount although my first reaction was a possibility that a drive shaft hadn't been pushed in so as to snap over the circlip which can also sometimes tend to give the same symptoms although if a new driveshaft has been fitted, that really shouldn't be an issue; unless of course if whoever fitted the driveshaft didn't seat it home either.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    I had a similar problem with my R18 wagon, it was the right hand wheel bearing. it felt like drive shafts & really surprised me, as wheel bearings usually feel very different. cheers!

    We danced among the lightning bolts,
    and tore the R10's assfromunder.
