Question about 2003 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class
At certain speeds there is a vibration from under the passenger footwell that transmits to the rear of the car. All wheels have been tracked and balanced.It was thought to be the heatsheild but that has been adjusted but has not improved things. it is only there for a short period of time although you can hold the vibration if you stay at the speed it vibrates at, once you increase speed it goes.Could it be the exhaust?Can't think of any other reason why it would tranmit from front to back.A friend has the CLK 240 and at the weekend it didi the same.Hope you can help.
Transmission mounts sagged, also check engine mounts.

SOURCE: Gear change vibration
These cars usually have a two piece drive shaft. There is a center bearing in the middle of the driveshaft for support and dampen vibration. It could also be the front rubber coupling where the transmission tailshaft and driveshaft meet. If both are fine try loosening the bolts on the rear transmission mount. Your mounts may be out of alignment allowing for unusual angles between the transmission and driveshaft. Good luck.
