2011 BMW 1 Series M Drivetrain Service

All About 2011 BMW 1 Series M Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 1 Series M's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your BMW, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2011 BMW 1 Series M, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following BMW's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

When to Get BMW 1 Series M Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2011 BMW 1 Series M drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your BMW 1 Series M may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your BMW 1 Series M doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2011 BMW 1 Series M? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
