Hi,

Does the vibration happen when the car is not moving? If it vibrates when not moving then it cannot be wheel balance.

Check if the exhaust is touching the car body.

Datsun Cherry - wow!

If you enjoy House (Dr) then you'll know Holmes. House (aka Home) and Holmes pronounced (Homes). One of the many similarities between Holmes and House. House lives at 221B as did Sherlock; Holmes was a doctor and so on...

that was a pretty good car back then for me-20 odd years ago.think i was about 17 yrs old at the time. It was a horrible shitty yellow colour. Never had 1 problem from it. Reversed into a car park pillar.got out to see the damage-Nothin except a bent chrome bumper!think every indian/paki shop in whitton had a datsun as well.haha

Mount under the ecu, the bolt has snapped most probs. I had this and it went on for 2 months i changed loads and i randomly undone the 2 13mm bolts on the chassis side of the mount and it lifted up. Easy to change............
