what you have here is clutch judder and it may be time for a new clutch kit for your vehicle but have it checked out first
If the vibration is there after you have released the clutch i would suggest you have a worn cv joint or a worn joint on the prop shaft or the prop shaft could be insecure in some way or may have a worn centre bearing if it has one
EARLY FREELANDERS DRIVE THE FRONT WHEELS A BIT MORE THAN THE BACK IF YOU MAKE THE MISTAKE OF FITTING THE NEWEST TYRES ON THE FRONT THEN THE BACK WHEELS HAVE EVEN MORE GROUND TO MAKE UP, THE RESULT IS THAT THE BACK WHEELS WILL WEAR LIKE A FIFTY PENCE PIECE, THIS WILL CAUSE A NIOSE SUCH AS YOURS, SOME PEOPLE RECOMMEND CHANGING THE TYRES BUT IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT CAUSED IT IN THE FIRST PLACE THEN 30000 MILES LATER YOU MAY SEE THAT YOUR FRONT TYRES ARE WORN AND THINK THAT NEW TYRES ON THE FRONT WILL BE OK, BUT THIS WILL BE THE START OF THE PROBLEM ALL OVER AGAIN, IF YOUR REALY UNLUCKY YOU DRIVE TRAIN WILL FAIL. THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS ALWAYS FIT YOUR BEST TYRES ON THE REAR THE SAME MAKE IF POSSIBLE.
if it still accelerates as normal its most likely to be a (uj) universal joint on a prop shaft. i poted the other problem on here about shuddering in all gears and mine is now fixed thanks to a new uj. cost around £20 + 2 hours labour at a garage.
Hi,I have a similar problem with vibration on my 51 plate freelander 2.5 v6 auto.
A friend of mine suggested taking the front prop off and just run it as a 2 wheel drive.Is this possible.He reckons other owners do this as there is a problem with the drive/gearbox and removing the front prop stops this occuring.
Any advice.I do not really use the crawler gear anyway.
Cheers.
