Hi all

Was wondering if anybody can help me. Recently while I have been driving my steering wheel seems to vibrate heavily. It is kind of a jerky movement from side to side. The car runs fine but I can feel it vibrate heavily when I drive. Was wondering if anybody had any ideas of what it could be? Do I need to get tracking done? The car is a Astra G 2001 1.6 16v.

Thanks for your help guys.

Balancing or even low tyre pressure. Failing that get the tracking looked at.

Get the tyre pressures done first .. only costs 20p at the most.

shop around for the tracking 1st, a lot of places dont charge you to check the tracking, they only charge you if it needs adjusting, at least that way if it wasnt out, you dont waste any money

Do both :D Check the pressures on the way to the tracking station.

You could try swapping your front wheels over to the back. If prob improves you then know you've got a wheel/tyre prob. At a guess I'd say you need your wheels rebalancing.
