1996 Volkswagen Jetta Drivetrain Repair

All About 1996 Volkswagen Jetta Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Jetta's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Volkswagen, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1996 Volkswagen Jetta to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Volkswagen's recommendations.

What Are Volkswagen Jetta 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 1996 Volkswagen Jetta drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Volkswagen Jetta may need driveshaft attention if you feel 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 parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Volkswagen Jetta drives.

How much does it cost to fix your 1996 Volkswagen Jetta drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
