2500 Rev Vibration

#1 Post by davcham9 » Thu Apr 17, 2008 12:51 pm

Hi new to the forum and will be becoming a member on my next pay day, I'm not sure if it is common on all rovers but at around 2500 revs i get a strange vibration coming from under the dashboard, it wouldn't usually bother me but it can get quite loud when cruising along duel carriage ways and motorways. any suggestions?

Is it a metallic noise? If so then check to see if it is the catalytic converter heat shield that is rattling. If it is wire it up with some wire or take it off.

My clutch pedal spring vibrates at the same sort of speed and revs.
