1996 Volkswagen Cabrio Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 1996 Volkswagen Cabrio Drivetrain Service

Your Cabrio’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the 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 1996 Volkswagen Cabrio, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Volkswagen's recommendations.
