2011 Audi A3 Drivetrain Repair & Service

2011 Audi A3 Drivetrain Service

Your A3 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 A3’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 2011 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.

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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2011 Audi A3 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. 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. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Audi A3.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2011 Audi A3? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
