Drive shaft vibration when taking of hard !

Hi guys,

when I accelerate hard from a stand still I'm getting a vibration from the middle/drive shaft area, its literally under my seat. Now im 90% sure its either the guibo or center bearing.. My brother had to replace his center bearing and it was making a different type of vibration, his one was a aggressive knocking and It would occur at speed upto around 60kms.

My issue is vibration only if accelerating from a standstill and sometimes if im on a Hill.


Anyone experienced the same issue ? Guibo or driveshaft ?


Thanks, Also car is a SMG.

I had that problem. Mechanics sucked so I ended up replacing a bunch of parts. Turned out to be the drive shaft CV joint.
