2009 Volkswagen Beetle Drivetrain Service

All About 2009 Volkswagen Beetle Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Beetle's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Volkswagen, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2009 Volkswagen Beetle, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Volkswagen's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Volkswagen Beetle 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2009 Volkswagen Beetle drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Volkswagen could be crying out for 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." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Volkswagen Beetle drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 2009 Volkswagen Beetle drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
