Your 335i’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 335i and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2012 BMW 335i, 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.
Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2012 BMW 335i drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your BMW 335i may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. 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. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your BMW 335i.
How much does it cost to fix your 2012 BMW 335i drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
