Dampening engine vibrations
« on: November 05, 2020, 09:44:44 pm »
As the title suggests has anyone find a way to reduce the tiresome vibrations/roughness that find their way in the cabin? Aftermarket engine mounts, bushes etc? I find the issue annoying especially after driving the wives "normal" car.

    If you mean excessive vibration from engine usually there are three possible causes, can come from engine mountings as you suggested, dual mass flywheel or crankshaft belt pulley, all these items are anti vibration damped within their assemblies.
    If crank pulley was delaminating then you would possibly see runout of drivebelt, dual mass flywheel most likely would be felt during clutch pedal operation, engine mounts mainly when selecting reverse then forward gears.
    If high mileage then all three could be suspect assuming exhaust assembly is secure on its hangars and heatshield
    isnt hanging loose etc.
    Hope this useful for you  :thumb:

    Thanks for the response. The car has always been like that and i've had it from new. I know that comfort is not the strong point of these cars. I am just looking if i can achieve a bit more refinement and less harshness for my daiily ride. I have Koni fsd fitted but still....

    Koni fsds on rear makes biggest difference to mine along with Fiat coupe/ Alfa Gtv rear bump stops, Febi part number 36979, only thing I havent tried is 16" wheels and tyres, 40 profile 17's on mine and I find myself clenching my teeth often on approach to rough surfaces..But its been utterly reliable and wouldnt change it for anything else even after near 11yrs  of ownership.

    Thats what i'm trying to eliminate. The "clenching of teeth"   ;D  in an area with bad road surfaces
