1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet Drivetrain Repair & Service

1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet Drivetrain Service

Your Cabriolet 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 a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Volkswagen's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get Volkswagen Cabriolet 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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Cabriolet might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Volkswagen Cabriolet drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 1985 Volkswagen Cabriolet drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
