This bulletin is being revised to add models years and to change the location of theEVA readings requested. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 03-00-91-001E (Section00 – General Information).

When diagnosing vibration concerns, use the following worksheet in conjunction withthe appropriate Vibration Analysis-Road testing procedure in the Vibration Correctionsub-section in SI. FILL OUT ONLY THE APPLICABLE PORTION OF THE WORKSHEET THAT APPLIESTO THE VIBRATION / NOISE.

Refer to the appropriate section of SI for specifications and repair procedures thatare related to the vibration concern.

Vibration/Noise Duplicated on Hoist: Yes__________ No__________

When using the EVA, always take a snapshot. This will help determine which vibrationshows up the most.

Important:Vibrate software can also be used to assist in vibration diagnosis. Refer to VibrateSoftware Description and Operation in SI.

EVA Readings

Refer to Electronic Vibration Analyzer (EVA) Description and Operation in SI for moredetailed information.

Important:As a reminder, place the EVA sensor where the vibration is felt by the customer oron the test drive ie: if the vibration complaint is from the seat then place the sensoron the seat track, if the vibration complaint is from the steering wheel then attachthe sensor to the steering column. Ensure the word “UP” on the sensor is physicallyfacing up. The typical areas are the seat track, the steering columnor the instrument panel. Locating the EVA sensor on additional area (i.e. the rightfender, left fender, right quarter panel, left quarter panel, rear seat track, etc.)may also assist in determining the component causing the vibration/noise. The keyis to look for the same Hz reading with the greatest amplitude G readings.

If a System Balance has been attempted but the vibration is still present or systembalance was not able to be achieved, check the ring gear backlash in eight differentspots on the ring gear. Note that excessive ring gear runout may result in a firstorder tire speed or first order prop shaft speed concern.
