1998 Volkswagen Beetle Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1998 Volkswagen Beetle

Your Beetle drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Volkswagen, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your Beetle and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1998 Volkswagen Beetle to maintain its performance power. Follow Volkswagen's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

Volkswagen Beetle Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1998 Volkswagen Beetle drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Beetle might need driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. 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 Volkswagen Beetle doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1998 Volkswagen Beetle drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
