vibration on my gear box at steady speed

     Featured on
Hi everyone,

I really hope someone has had this problem or knows a possible. Answer. I have a 116d ed 2014 with 3k on the clock that after a run say 20mins will start to vibrate through the gearbox and then start to choke. This doesnt happen all the time so its hard to recreate this problem. It happens at any speed any gear and normally happens at about 50mph. Its been in the dealer and they cant find anything wrong. Any ideas???

I had this same issue with my 116D but like you it happened so rarely and so inconsistently that tracing the cause wasn't possible. Always happened between 50-70mph. Hasn't happened for ages now. Even though I'm getting a new car next week, I'd still be curious if anyone does know what that was

Doing a DPF regen possibly?

I believe things can get a bit chuggy while it's going on.
