The following may cause vibration at normal road speeds: ● ● out-of-balance wheels; out-of-round tyres. The following may cause shudder or vibration during acceleration: ● ● damaged powertrain/drivetrain mounts; excessively worn or damaged out-board or in-board CV joints. The cause of noise can often be traced by f rst looking for leaks. A dry bearing or joint will produce signif cant noise. 1 Inspect the CV joint gaiters (boots) for cracks, tears or splits. 2 Inspect the underbody for any indication of grease splatter near the front wheel half shaft joint boots.

Two bulbs blown 2. Main lighting fusible link blown 3. 3 How long is a piece of string? Yes I know, twice the distance from the middle to one end. What I am really getting at here though is the issue about what is a valid reading or measurement and what is not – when compared to data. For example, if the ‘data source’ says the resistance of the component should be between 60 and 90 Ω, what do you do when the measured value is 55 Ω? If the measured value was 0 Ω or 1000 Ω then the answer is easy – the component is faulty.
