Dodge Viper Problems
Some driveline clunk noted on acceleration and deceleration is considered normal.
A single click or pop may be heard from the rear of the vehicle when the clutch is released. Our technicians tell us the repair involves installing matched hubs and yokes to the rear axle.
A water leak may develop between the top and side curtains. There are updated right and left side rails available to correct this issue.
A light chatter or rattle or noise from the transmission may be noted with the clutch engaged and the transmission in neutral. Updating the transmission lubricant, SAE 75W will help but not eliminate it.
Wind noise and/or water leaks may be noted from the top of the windshield frame. Our technicians tell us that installing adjustable top latch handles should help to correct this problem.
