Volkswagen Front Wheel Drive 1974-1989 Repair Guide

Chassis Greasing


These vehicles require no chassis greasing and are not equipped with grease nipples. Check the axle shaft and steering rack boots, as well as the tie rod and ball joint rubber boots occasionally for leaking or cracking. At the same time, squirt a few drops of oil on the parking brake equalizer (point where the cables branch off to the rear brakes).
