2004 Volkswagen Golf Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2004 Volkswagen Golf

Your Golf’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 Golf and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2004 Volkswagen Golf to maintain its performance power. Follow Volkswagen's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2004 Volkswagen Golf drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Golf might need 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 parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date.

Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Volkswagen Golf drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2004 Volkswagen Golf? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
