support bearing vibrating between speed 12-18 mph then would balance out only 34000 mile on clock just caught the end of the warranty period and did take a look for any missing wieghts non missing.

I certainly wouldn't drive a car a mile to the shops and back.
If you HAVE to drive the car for that short distance you'd be wise to go for a proper drive to warm the engine/gearbox up. I suspect that the DPF is being cleaned or it's just the air-con fan.

Short journeys are very bad for engines, even more so modern diesels.
