2009 BMW 328i Drivetrain Repair

All About 2009 BMW 328i Drivetrain Service

Your 328i’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your BMW, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your 328i and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 2009 BMW 328i to maintain its performance 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 328i 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2009 BMW 328i drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your BMW 328i may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your BMW 328i drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2009 BMW 328i? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
