Focus 1.8 TDCi Mk 1.5 - vibration under load


Recommended Posts

Guys, apologies if this has been covered before but its my 1st time on here and just need some help.

I have a 1.8 TDCI on a Mk1.5 which has developed a strange noise/vibration when the car is put into to gear once warm.

My logic thought that it might be a gearbox or clutch problem, but the clutch has a couple of mil on both sides before the rivets and the noise is constant through all gears once warm.

If you start up there is nothing unusual and the engine runs as well as ever regardless of rev's. The noise isnt disk or pad related as its still there once both have been removed. Once you start moving the noise/ vibration occurs and gradually gets worse as the temperature increases. 

If the box is removed, there seems to be a lot of play in all directions between the clutch plate to the DMF, but not sure if this is standard as I've never had a look at one before.

So any ideas as to what might be causing the vibration (which is felt mainly through the passenger footwell)?
