Vibration

Post by JSEAL » Mon Mar 27, 2017 8:51 pm

Hey, I have a Peugeot 406 y reg 2001. Just recently its started making a vibration type noise from the front of the car which you can hear quite loudly whilst driving . The noise goes when I turn right but returns once I straighten up or turn left. Has anyone got any ideas? Any help much appreciated.

Hi and welcome aboard. 8)

A few people have had similar problems and found a mis-shaped tyre is the cause. Try swapping both front wheels in turn for the spare.
Eliminate this before you try anything more expensive.
