2012 BMW 528i Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2012 BMW 528i

Your 528i drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your BMW, from the axles to the transmission. It’s one of your 528i’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2012 BMW 528i, 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.
