1986 BMW 524td Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1986 BMW 524td

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: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1986 BMW 524td to maintain its performance power. Follow BMW's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
