1989 Volkswagen Cabriolet Drivetrain Service

1989 Volkswagen Cabriolet Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Cabriolet's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your Cabriolet’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1989 Volkswagen Cabriolet to maintain its performance power. Follow Volkswagen's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

When to Get Volkswagen Cabriolet 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1989 Volkswagen Cabriolet drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. 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. 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.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1989 Volkswagen Cabriolet? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.

  •  Can Volkswagen drivetrain maintenance help me save money? Servicing the drivetrain system can help you save money by saving other parts of your vehicle. A bad drivetrain can put undue stress on other vehicle parts and lead to premature wear and tear.
  • What are signs my Volkswagen drivetrain is damaged? Noises toward the back of your Volkswagen Cabriolet, leaking fluid, trouble turning — these could all be signs of drivetrain damage you want to address. Take action before something more severe happens.
  • When should I come in for Volkswagen Cabriolet differential service? Double check your owner’s manual and talk with a technician. Differential service frequency varies from car to car. At a minimum, we recommend getting your differential inspected and the differential fluid changed as a part of your regular vehicle maintenance routine since your vehicle cannot function without a differential.
