MK2 gal 130k original clutch and drive shafts. Very strange side to side oscillations only when loaded up. Stuff in the passenger footwell can be seen wobbling side to side and occupants feel the wobbling?. If I lift off it goes. When on my own in the car no sign of it at all. Drive shafts have been off to grease the dry joints and several new CV Boots over the years. My first thought was CV joints but they appear ok for 130k? Is this a symptom of DM Flyweel failure? Anyone else had it? Not sure if my car needed the dmf recall but it's not been apart during my 13 year's of ownership since 50k miles.
Car is well looked after as never found anything better like for like!. Any ideas

Try swapping the front wheels for the back ones, you could have lost a weight off one of your wheels?

Dual mass flywheel seems the most common diagnosis.slight vibs go with clutch pushed in.

Well I've now had the flywheel dmf and clutch replaced and fingers crossed it's fixed. The clutch still had some meat on it @ 130k miles. The DMF flywheel had a fair bit of rotational movement which I think was the problem. I also had to replace the rear crank seal behind the flywheel. Clutch now much lighter to use so job well done but £800 bill!
