Hi all

So I have problem with my S60 D5 in last 3-4 weeks. Strange vibrations appears when speeding, no matter in what speed, no matter which speed. Driving constantly same speed, everything is fine. Yesterday I check everything about suspension, EVERYTHING!!! And guy in garage say: everything is like brand new. Every deatil is checked except AT because he is not so familiar with Aisin.
Shifting is perfect no matter cold or hot.

So, is it possible it's torque converter? I called specialist this morning for AT diagnose and he say that it is possible and if it need rebuilding it will cost approximately 500 euros (650 USD).

Axles joints new, SACHS. Shafts new, changed 5 months ago, SKF. Bushings new Lemfoerder. Wheel bearings new, FEBI. Tires new. Almost complete suspension new.
It seems like vibrations on body but comming from left side down. That's why I think it's torque converter.

I would try replacing the passenger side cv axle first. The cv axle you just put is most likely a rebuilt unit and may already be bad. Your vibration complaint describes a failed passenger cv axle exactly.

I would try to find an aftermarket cv axle that is new, not remanufactured.

What about wheel balancing weights having fallen off?
This would be more of a speed sensitive issue. But an easy thing to look for.

I would never buy anything rebuilt what goes on wheels and brakes. Everything I mentioned are brand new parts.

Maybe if I come visit this summer I can come help you diagnose it

UPDATE: car was 3 days at transmission specialist and he say AT working absolutely perfect. Like brand new. And he found problem. Left drive shaft is damaged and shaking on speeding. So on friday ordered brand new left and right drive shaft for 170 euros, cca 200 USD and they arrived today. This was best news ever when something happened to car.
