2017 BMW 328d Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2017 BMW 328d

Your 328d’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your BMW, from back to front. It’s one of your 328d’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2017 BMW 328d, 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.

What Are BMW 328d Drivetrain Repairs

You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2017 BMW 328d drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your BMW could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice 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. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your BMW 328d doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2017 BMW 328d? Again, it depends! Some more 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.
