2009 Audi A3 Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2009 Audi A3

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. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2009 Audi A3, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Audi's recommendations.

What Are Audi A3 Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2009 Audi A3 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your A3 might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." 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 A3 doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 2009 Audi A3 drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
