1983 Volkswagen Rabbit Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1983 Volkswagen Rabbit

Your Rabbit’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 your Rabbit’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1983 Volkswagen Rabbit to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Volkswagen's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
