Bigger Rumble than normal,

When on hard accerleration the whole centre rumbles, I think it may be the mounting for the drive shaft

Any one else had anything like this

Found the problem,

It appears to be the prop shaft mount at the front, the rubber has seen better days.

I am sure I have seen on here before an online workshop manual/ pdf file, can any one help on this or just advise me where I can find a blow up of the area ?

Thanks in advance,

Ok, we found the info

Bad news, the Treg needs a new propshaft and mounting kit, for those lucky enough to have it done in warrenty, price for the bit alone is ?568 plus the VAT



On a better note we think we have found somewhere in Germany who can do the oem part for ?290 plus

I will report back when it arrives

Update 3 September 2009:

A VERY helpful guy on www.clubtouareg.com has PM'd me with the following for anyone who wants to repair their existing propshaft rather than buy a new one:

"The web site you need is.www.firowpropshafts.co.uk , and the chap's name is Mark Rowley."
