1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet Drivetrain Repair

1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet Drivetrain Service

Your Cabriolet’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Volkswagen, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your Cabriolet and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Volkswagen's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

Volkswagen Cabriolet Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Cabriolet might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. 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 1987 Volkswagen Cabriolet drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
