Unless a vehicle is equipped with built-in massagers, the feel of vibrations coming through the driver’s seat can be an alarming experience. Luckily, there is a fairly limited number of components that would cause such an issue.

Common reasons for this to happen:

Seat is not fully secured to vehicle

Over time, bolts and hardware holding the seat to the vehicle can loosen or wear out. Sometimes this can be fixed with a few turns of a wrench, so it should be addressed immediately for comfort and to ensure the safety of the car is maintained.

Worn out suspension parts

The suspension in a vehicle performs the task of keeping everything smooth and level while traveling down the road. If any components malfunction, become loose, or bend, then the result may be vibrations in the vehicle. In the case of a vibrating driver’s seat, suspension components in the rear are a likely culprit. If the vibration gets worse when the road surface is rough, then this is probably the source of the problem.

Warped brake disks or drums

Brake disks or drums provide a surface for the brake pads to grip onto when the brakes are applied in order to stop the car. If the rotor or drum is warped in any way, then the friction provided to the brake pads is intermittent. This intermittent friction can cause vibrations and often sounds like the brake is slipping on the disk. Vibration that occurs only during braking is an indicator that this is the problem.

Unbalanced wheels

In order to rotate smoothly and evenly, wheels must be properly balanced. If something happens to the wheel or tire that disrupts the distribution of weight, violent shakes and vibrations can occur. If the vibration occurs consistently around a certain speed, then this is likely the issue.

What to expect:

A top-rated mobile mechanic will come to your home or office to determine the source and cause of the shaky or vibrating seat, and will then provide a detailed inspection report that includes the scope and cost of the necessary repairs.

How it's done:

The mechanic will ask about any recent potholes, bottom-outs, or collisions that the vehicle may have experienced. Following that, they will inspect the wheels, axles, and any driveshafts on the vehicle.

How important is this service?

There is a heightened importance with any problem that causes vibration in the vehicle. Vibration means that somewhere there is a component that is unbalanced. Unbalanced components will typically fail in motion and tend to carry a lot of inertia with them when they do. Small, inexpensive parts have the potential to damage far more expensive parts in these dynamic kinds of failures. Book a mechanic when the problem is first detected.

Ford LTD * - Pre-purchase Car Inspection - Buena Park, California
I found my dream car on the internet but it was located in California. I needed someone in the local area to check out the car for me before I made the purchase. Fortunately I found out about yourmechanic.com and Godwin was the mechanic assigned to handle my situation. I could not be more happy with the service he provided. Nothing like having peace of mind when making a large purchase sight unseen. Thanks Godwin for the professional service.

Noise in the left side rear when drive on a no flat street

Hi Carol...the best results are obtained, and costs for everybody are kept to a minimum, if you ONLY replace parts that are confirmed to be defective. If you have not yet gotten a conclusive, authoritative diagnosis from a certified mechanic...

I swapped car with my daughter to put new winter tires on hers (I always use steel spiked winter tires here in Sweden). It is a 2011- Seat Leon with 155 000 km on the odometer (about 9700 sm).The tires, Good Year Ultra Grip, I put on have in reviews received good grades on noise, but I feel that I hear a rumbling noise that I do not recognize even though these types of tires always produce more noise than summer tires which it had when I last drove it.Putting my finger on the wheel hubs outside of the brake disks, the left hub is lukewarm but the right one is cold, this after an hour drive on the motorway in -7 degrees C.I just replaced the rear wheelbearings on my Volvo V70, but it had more than twice the distance on the odo. That hub was hot after driving it and some noise.On the V70 my reasoning was that if one was warn out, the other one would not last much longer so I changed the both of them.Can I be sure that this really is a faultering bearing on the Seat? In that case chances are that it is a premature failure or? and in that case I need to change only the left one?I do all this myself in my garage, therefor I don´t want to go to the dealership to pay for the diagnosis and then decline having them do the job.How can I be sure I take the right decision?
