The vibration was not from steering wheel or when turning the wheel. It was under acceleration and speeds over 80kmh. in 2wd it was a lot less.
Well things have changed a little as new driveshaft appears bedded in!A special engineering shop can replace the joints, even put a stronger and bigger ones. In my thread you can see that a bmw one suits.
I would say it is the prop-shaft. Had this with my parents Terrano some years ago, exactly the same symptoms. changed it for a used one from ebay, and it went. I think also part of the problem as they did not grease the UJ that is in it.Ok so new driveshaft fitted. All it's done is reduce the vibration at around 65mph but 30 - 35 it's fully there and feel like you're in a gear too low or on a concrete road. Oddly the steering is now super sensative for some reason! I wasn't charged for refit so car's back in next week and take off propshaft just to rule that out but otherwise we are stumped and nearly everything else has been replaced over past 12 months but now wondering if it could be drivers side drive shaft although issue is more prevalent when turning left suggesting left side!!!
Any other ideas really welcome - apart from that it runs fine!!!
Glad you go it sorted. It seems a common problem with Nissans that they tend to go. As my parents are in a different country, I told them it was down to lack of grease in the UJ on the propshaft, it then wears and puts the whole shaft out of balance.Right - new propshaft on from Driveshaft Part Ltd for £240 and car is perfect. Not a sound or vibration from 0 - 90. Very happy at last. Propshaft is same as on Qashqai and Renault Koleos and they get it made for them with removable 'U' joint bearings - clever idea.

Hi KenHi Jim
I appear to have a similar sound, from the rear of the car, it's more like a pulsing rumble/drone and disappears as speed increases
Which propshaft did you get from them? There are a couple on their website
