2009 Volkswagen Passat Drivetrain Repair & Service

All About 2009 Volkswagen Passat Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your Passat's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Volkswagen, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2009 Volkswagen Passat, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Volkswagen's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
