    Steering vibration beginning only when at 65mph plus

    This is a 2008 Touran Sport 2.0 TDI DSG (thats stretching it a bit), 114000 well serviced miles, always had a slight vibration but improved last allround tyrechange with a 4wheel alighnmet straight after.

    Just had, following a split boot a tierod end and a new tyre on osr then straight away a 4 wheel alighnment.
    Now there is a noticeable vibration obove 65mph which is only when driving straight ahead, if the steering wheel is moved either way just a few degrees when the road bends it stops at that same speed.

    Crasher had some advice about vibration last time I looked (about a year ago) if I remember it was associated with a king nut? or is that just my imagination.

    Last time of asking VW only suggested it could be the steering wheel but that sounds a bit vague. Can any one help otherwise this car is very good at what it does.

    I would say the front wishbone rear consul bushes have slack in their hex fittings. If you look at the video from Superpro you will see how much the OE bush moves, when it wears in the hex fitting it starts to kick around.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
