2008 BMW 528i Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2008 BMW 528i

Your 528i drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your BMW, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your 528i and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2008 BMW 528i, you help maintain your vehicle's 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 2008 BMW 528i drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your BMW could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." 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 2008 BMW 528i drivetrain? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
