That's a common problem on the Sevilles. Have the dealer do a road force balance, that should fix the problem.
Have the technicians put the tire(s) requiring the most adjustment on the rear of the car after the RFB. I recently had my car done and it made a world of difference - hardly any vibration now. I have two rims that are bent, but not visibly. The RFB all but cured my vibration and the shop put the two worst wheels on the back of the car for me.bvpettit said:Thanks everyone. I have scheduled a road force test for tommorrow morning along with a motor mount inspection.
Off to Florida with the mother-in-law!
Tips section might be a good place for it.EcSTSatic said:Thanks for the link Ranger.:thumbsup:
Should this be a stickie or under the "tips" section?
Great link! Many thanksRanger said:I just bought an '02 SLS and had the same problem and response from the dealer. Like you, a spin balance did nothing. Road force balance cured the vibration. This site explaines it and has a locator for one near you.
Did you lose a weight on one of the wheels?bvpettit said:The car was great for a week and the vibration started again. As for the roadforce balance, as the other guy said, I seached the website and found a mess of dealers thathad the tester. It cost me $79.99. I should have taken the minivan to Florida, it would have been a much more enjoyable ride.
When I bought my TurboCoupe with the wheel lock option, it came with a weight that was supposed to be mounted 180 degrees from the lock. Moral of the story, they have an impact to wheel balance.Alekto said:Went back to dealer and told them to get it as close to zero as possible. And take off the lock nuts on the wheels (they break sometimes, when removing the wheel). Got them back with close to zero as possible on each tire.
