2012 BMW 335i Drivetrain Repair & Service

2012 BMW 335i Drivetrain Service

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.

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.
