2011 BMW 135i Drivetrain Service

2011 BMW 135i Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 135i's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your 135i’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2011 BMW 135i, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to BMW's recommendations.
