Your 525i drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your BMW, from back to front.

You can minimize repairs by following BMW's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

What Are BMW 525i 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1991 BMW 525i drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your BMW 525i may need driveshaft attention if you feel heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates.
