2005 Audi A4 Drivetrain Service

All About 2005 Audi A4 Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your A4's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your A4 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2005 Audi A4, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Audi's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Audi A4 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 help repair all of your 2005 Audi A4 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Audi A4 may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Audi A4 doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2005 Audi A4? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
