2008 Audi A3 Drivetrain Service

2008 Audi A3 Drivetrain Service

Your A3 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Audi, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your A3’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2008 Audi A3 to maintain its performance power. Follow Audi's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Audi A3 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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2008 Audi A3 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Audi could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Audi A3 drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 2008 Audi A3 drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
