    Hi all.
    Four a couple of months i´ve been experiencing a vibration in 2nd gear between 1500 and 2000 revs and in 3rd gear near idling poit.
    Thought that it would the flywheel and after LUK tecnician saw it he said that it woudn´t be it.
    I don´t know what else to do.
    Could some one help on this matter?

    hello iceman. could be a number of things, without experiencing the problem its hard to say realy. does this vibration happen on acceleration? could be a driveshaft?
  3. iceman Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Drivshafts were also changed.
    Yes, the vibration is under acceleration and then it disapers.
    Another thing is that sometimes does it and sometimes don´t.

    Could it be a rattling heat shield on the underside somewhere, this was quite common on the Civic Type-R (EP3) and a vibrabration would be felt at 1200-1800rpm.
  7. iceman Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    I´ve checked that also and nothing.
    The honda guy said that it could be some build up in the accelerator butterflyes (they are 2... i think)
    So i bought Liqui Moly EGR cleaner and gived a try.
    Until now all the same.
    But in the last weeks i´ve been noticing that the vibration / judder is decreasing.
    I´ll keep up the post and feedback when i got it!!

    Hi all!!

    After all this time i found out that the problem is in the right half shaft (here in Portugal the passengers side).

    Could someone inform if it´s possible to buy just that part?

    Best regards!!

    But you already had new driveshafts?
  10. iceman Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    I bought the left and right driveshaft (blueprint).
    But the problem is in the half drive shaft (right side)

    See this picture: 89610_Half_drive_shaft.

    Ok, so you have replaced the left one and the right outer one but not the right inner one.

    That is actually where they fail. We assumed that you had replaced the entire shaft on that side.
  12. Zebster Guest

    Yes, i had assumed that the entire driveshafts had been replaced.

    Sorry, my fault.

    Do you know were could i buy a new part?
  14. Zebster Guest

    A Honda dealer? Or are they too expensive?

    Are you sure its the outer part of the driveshaft? Maybe it's the outer CV joint... Might be cheaper to replace the joint?
  15. iceman Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Honda part is arrond 400 €.
    If you now were i could buy the part of another brand that would be great!
    The part that is worn is the one that i have already mentioned (the right half shaft).
    Mine is worn were the right drive shaft conects to the half drive shaft.
