1999 BMW 528i Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1999 BMW 528i

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 528i's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your 528i’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1999 BMW 528i to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to BMW's recommendations.

BMW 528i Drivetrain Repairs

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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1999 BMW 528i drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your BMW could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your BMW 528i doesn’t drive like it used to.

How much does it cost to fix your 1999 BMW 528i drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
