2000 1.2 Shaking at 78mph - lju00dt
Just wondering if any one has any ideas on this.

When the car gets to 76 - 78 on the motorway - the steering wheel begins to shake sending a noticable vibration through me! there is a slight rattle or juddering noise from behind the cloumn / display unit.

It doesnt sound like it is really bad or anything and i rarely do that speed - i have had new tyres put on and had them balanced which should have done it but still it does this rattle?

It's possible the wheels need balancing again. If not, there may be a tracking problem. But I would think the balance of one or both front wheels may be a bit out.

A badly out-of-balance rear wheel can also cause vibration, but it won't come through the steering wheel.
