2006 BMW 525xi Drivetrain Repair

2006 BMW 525xi Drivetrain Service

Your 525xi’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your BMW, from back to front. It’s one of your 525xi’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2006 BMW 525xi, 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.
