Thread: Navara vibration

    Navara vibration

    Hi guys
    my 08 navara developed a vibration throughout the car between 65 and 75mph.

    I didnt get get it checked out as I thought it could be wheel balancing and as I was getting goodridge AT put on.

    New tyres on and the vibration even worse. Looks like an appointment at Nissan.

    Anyone any ideas what it could be?

    May be the drive shafts, but at this distance it is a dodgy guess at best. Still you could roll under it and "waggle" each end by the UJ to check for play.

    Hope this helps,

    have you been off road roading and ripped a balance weight off a propshaft?Inspect both props for damage.
    ​Has the vehicle got a centre diff lock? if so engage the cdl and remove front and rear prop one at a time and test it.

    I had a similar problem with my old D22, it was free play in a propshaft UJ

    could be a buckled wheel , wheelbearing, uj on the propshaft or any one of a dozen other potential failures, if it's that bad get a grown up to check it out 70mph is no time to find out it was something vital

    Prop shaft, this has happened twice on mine now, same every time.

    It will be from the prop shaft or uj or centre bearing you just need to get it on a ramp and check for play.

    Well i took navara to Nissan and they rebalanced the 2 front tyres which made an improvement but now vibrates between 65 and 80 mph
    when I get to 82mph all vibration stops and car runs smoothly.
    I took back to tyre centre and they rebalanced and adjusted all four balancing weights, and a further improvement but still some vibration.

    I just dont don't understand why it smooths out at 82 mph
