Hi ,new to Honda s ,previously had Petrol foresters, good cars but heavy on fuel.
Pleased with the CRV so far one owner vehicle 80k on the clock nice clean car however.
Has a vibration between 57-65 mph seams to be coming from mid to rear ?? as opposed to coming through the steering wheel needed new tires so took a punt and purchased the vehicle, thinking that was the source of the vibration so changed all 4 and had them balanced , no improvement
Had a good look around all CV boots intact with no slop when pulling & pushing. Noticed rust around the Prop shaft rear hardiy spicer joint , disconnected and found it to be
very tight in one direction , so changed the propshaft Had the car out for a run there is some improvement but vibration still evident .
Ant thoughts / Pointers would be appreciated

WELCOME!

Keep that new propshaft well lubricated (periodic silicone spray onto the U joints):cool:

Of course, we are jealous that you have manual transmissions.



You might have a bad half-shaft. Even if you have evidence that they were replaced in the past, aftermarket parts are notorious for their short lives.

Most recommend a factory rebuilt axle.

PS: Check the motor/transmission mounts for broken rubber.

Welcome to the forum! Got any pictures? We want to see your new ride!

By the way, this section is for introductions. For mechanical issues, you might want to re-post the issue in the appropriate Generations Section, for more responses.
