My 91 750 vibrates at take off and stops around 25mph. The vibration SEEMS to be coming from the rear passenger side.

From reading the forum, a lot of people have had problems with center u-joints. I went to the dealer today and they seem to think it's my drive shaft and differential to the tune of over $4000. I think it could be the drive shaft but not the differential because there is no slippage.

Does anyone know of a part source for drive shafts and u-joints and maybe a possible differential?

Lastly, does anyone know of a good/honest 750 mechanic in the Washington DC/Richmond area?

Thanks in advance!


Differentials are almost bulletproof up to about 300k, and they typically start making a lot of noise before they go bad so I doubt there is anything wrong with that. Maybe try German Auto Works in Rockville, MD for service (301) 424 7463.

Good luck,

Matt
