2016 Audi A3 Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2016 Audi A3

Your A3 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Audi, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2016 Audi A3, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Audi's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

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 take care of most 2016 Audi A3 drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Audi A3 may need driveshaft attention if you feel 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 parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. 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 2016 Audi A3 drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.

  • When should I come in for Audi A3 differential service? Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician. Differential service frequency varies from car to car.
