2003 Volkswagen Passat Drivetrain Repair

All About 2003 Volkswagen Passat Drivetrain Service

Your Passat’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your Passat and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 2003 Volkswagen Passat to maintain its performance power. Follow Volkswagen's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
