Hello. I just got a 2008 407 sw 1.6 hdi....
When in 1st on take off she vibrates a bit..... and i guess it gets the shift high in the pedal...but it doesn't skid ....

Engine mount? clutch?

Many Thanks

The description is too vague to give you a correct answer.

Could be clutch, DMF, engine mount, tie bar or drive shaft etc. Any other symptoms squeak or knock on start up or switch off. What does it do if you give it very little throttle and try to gently pull away

Im sorry it was the way i could describe.
If i do gentle it will vibrate if i compensate with acceleration and control with clutch it will not vibrate as much....
There are no knocks or squeaks...
Many Thanks

I have similar in my 308 sw 2015. But mine has a little squeak when under load on gear change. Plus my pedal isn't pushing back and sticks.Not looking good!

I understand.
My pedal works fine. i just think it grabs the shift to high when you press the clutch and vibrates

If theres no nasty squeal, or knocking - just vibration praps its the release bearing giving up, its a gearbox off kinda job unfortunatley for that. So with that i'd be having a look at the other suspects first, engine mounts can be easily ruled out by holding your handbrake on good and tight, putting it in 1st with an assistant keeping an eye on the engine for excessive movement when you pull the clutch out, not quite dumping it (letting out quickly) but enough to jerk the car to see if it replicates any vibration. The clutch can also be checked by the same method as its under load and not moving your assistant (very trusting assistant i might add) can "feel" or hear the gearbox housing while its under load to see if theres any vibration or noise being emitted from there. Safety first - chock the wheels good and proper and make sure you can stall the car with the handbrake pulled up. O course if youre not happy doing this then dont, another method is get the driven wheels off the ground and engage a gear, the bearing should still make a noise but not as much due to very little load resistance being put on it. Best of luck to ya.
