Have been having issues with my Ba xr6t mkii manual , for a while a whirring sound would come and go slightly between 60-80 km/h (I put it down to just about time for a centre bearing change over. then after about 3-4 weeks of driving to and from work I gave it a little throttle from a standing start and it made a very bad vibration through the car , pedals and gearstick. after that , any hard acceleration of more than 1/2 throttle would make bad vibration and the whirring sound had now become a Humming sound heard and felt above 50km/h. and an all around feeling of "something isn't right" was lingering ....a couple of days after this (about 60-80 kms later) I was driving with barely any acceleration at 60km/h and the whole car broke into vibration with a metal on metal sound present, the car also seemed to now have some resistance under acceleration as if the handbrake had been left on.... Babied the car home about 30km away and every time I would hit an incline and had to give anything more than a touch of acceleration the car would vibrate/drone and hum violently . on the very last hill to my house I honestly didn't think I was going to make it. the last 2kms. when I got home I took it apart and on this video is what I found...... If anyone can point me in the direction of what it might be? and the costs involved / possibly even someone in the northern perth area that can fix it, with quality workmanship? Until I get it fixed im leaving it parked up . im hoping it'll get me to the repair shop without the cost of a tow, though I've been told too much vibration being sent back through the gearbox etc could be very bad? car runs 500+rwhp on 15psi
Hi everyone Sorry to start another thread. Just thought I'd write up my own as a search doesn't seem to reveal any similar topics to what I'm experiencing at the moment. My 07 BF XR6 AUTO, driven as my daily on highways constantly. It has a very cruisy life and is always babied (although with the $ it's currently stealing from me, it doesn't deserve it 😂). When travelling around and between 30-35K (and often 50-55K also, although not as violent), its almost as if it loses all drive momentarily and then suddenly engages very roughly, creating a heavy jerk throughout the car and then a grinding noise can be heard coming from the rear. Also when accelerating out of a corner, the grinding at the rear noise occurs again. The Diff Bushes; both L&R front/upper ball joints, L&R Sway Bars, both front wheel bearings and diff oil were replaced less than 5k ago and in the past couple of days, I had the transmission serviced and the driveshaft repaired and balanced. This seems to have somewhat very slightly (barely at all) helped the issue but it's still extremely noticable and uncomfortable while driving. TIA
Hey guys, first post. I'm in the process off changing my centre bearing as the rubber collapsed but I'm having trouble taking the CV off the driveshaft. Just wondering if anyone has done this before? I can only find info on sedans which have a uni joint. I've taken the circlip off and it looks like it's on a spline but I can't tap it off with a hammer, there must be more to it. Cheers
Has anyone tried a set of these CV and driveshaft assemblies --> http://autowholesale...products_id=221 (the pic is incorrect) The guy I spoke to when I contacted them said they are stronger than standard, they extend to the same length as standard but they can plunge further than standard. He also said that he has sold hundreds of them and has only had one or two back broken.They also sell them on ebay. The seller name is AUTO WHOLESALE AUST
