1985 BMW 524td Drivetrain Repair

All About 1985 BMW 524td Drivetrain Service

Your 524td’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 524td and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1985 BMW 524td, you help maintain your vehicle's 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 524td 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1985 BMW 524td drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your 524td might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. So much depends on the climate and your driving style. 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 524td.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1985 BMW 524td? 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.
