2010 BMW 128i Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2010 BMW 128i

Your 128i drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your BMW, from back to front. 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 2010 BMW 128i, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow BMW's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.

BMW 128i 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2010 BMW 128i drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your 128i might need driveshaft repair if you notice vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your BMW 128i doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 2010 BMW 128i drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
