    Hi, I have a 270cdi ml, just done 119,000 miles. I have a slight vibration whilst driving and can be felt through steering. I think it is drive related and have heard about DMF's causing vibrations. If it is the DMF what mileage do they usually go and what's the average cost to get done.
    Thanks

    Is yours a manual or an auto....if auto, you have a torque converter not a DMS!

    Thanks for reply. Mine is a auto. Glad it has no DMF but any ideas what the vibration could be?

    Could be a wheel balance problem?

    Did the ML suffer the Valeo rad issues, leading to glycol in the ATF?

    Lost a wheel weight? Does speed affect the amount of vibration? :confused:

    The wheel balance is ok, the gentle vibration is there all the time but increases slightly with acceleration.
