Mein Auto: 2001 740i
it occurs when i am going about 30-40 mph. and when the car is shifting into third or fourth gear. I feel it in the seat or midway towards the back of the car. The Flex disc looks ok but cannot see the center shaft bearing because its covered with the heat shield. the torque arms trans mounts and engine mounts have all been replaced last week. I didn't feel this vibration before changing the mounts but i had to jack up engine to get them out and back in. Maybe mis aligned the shaft? I didn't take it loose at all, just jacked up the motor and tranny to replace mounts. I had a bit of a vibration before i changed the mounts but that is much better since replacing them. The vib NOW is when i am accelerating from a dead stop, and it seems to get less vib as i continue to accelerate. i do not feel it when in park....maybe JUST a VERY LITTLE but engine is not TOTALLY smooth at idle...sometimes it seems to get a little rough but sometimes its fine. I have NO SES light on. What about center carrier? what about rear axle? what are those symptoms? Or how to check them? Is it true that i have to cut the shaft in order to change the Center Carrier Bearing or can this be done without cutting the shaft? THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!!!!!
