1989 Audi 80 Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1989 Audi 80

Your 80 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your 80’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1989 Audi 80 to maintain its performance power. Follow Audi's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

What Are Audi 80 Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1989 Audi 80 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your 80 might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Audi 80 doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1989 Audi 80 drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.

  • When should I come in for Audi 80 differential service? Differential service frequency varies from car to car. Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician.
