To help you understand what happens during a full service on a BMW, we have created this useful guide.

Getting a BMW Full Service

A full service is a job which can vary in the amount of time taken and cost depending on the specific model of BMW, its age and the condition it is in.

There is also a distinct difference between a full BMW service and an Interim BMW Service, which we will detail below.

We will also explain what the difference is between getting a full service performed on your BMW at a main dealer compared to having a full service carried out on your BMW at a local garage or fast fit chain.

However, we’ll begin by explaining what is checked during a BMW full service and why it is important.

BMW Engine Oil

It is absolutely critical that your BMW has a healthy amount of engine oil flowing through the system as it is vital for maintaining the vehicle. The engine oil level will be checked during a full service and topped up if it is to low.

The oil filter will also be checked on your BMW and the part will be replaced if required.

BMW Brake Fluid

If your BMW has not been braking properly, there is a good chance that brake fluid is playing a part. If brake fluid is low, then your ability to stop will decrease. That is why the levels of brake fluid will be checked during a full service on a BMW.

It is possible for the fluid to leak out of the system through a crack or hole so if you ever notice dripping liquid, it could be brake fluid.

BMW Anti-freeze Coolant

BMW anti-freeze is vital for those winter months where the cold has the power to cause a car problems. Just like engine oil and brake fluid, the amount of anti-freeze in your BMW will be checked during a full service.

BMW Windscreen Wash and Wipers

Once more, this is a simple check which does not take long at all, regardless, it is still an important part of a full BMW service.

It is vital that you are able to remove water, snow and dirt from your windscreen, which is why the rubber on your windscreen wipers will also be checked as it naturally degrades over time and loses the ability to wipe obstructions away.

BMW Power Steering

Much like brake fluid, it is critical that power steering fluid does not leak from the system as your ability to control your BMW will decrease. Checks will be made to ensure no leaks or cracks have caused the power steering fluid to fall below safe levels.

BMW Lights and Electrics

It has been reported on some BMW owner forums that the German brand suffers from electrical problems regularly. Faults with wipers not working, turn signals not responding and the cooling fan not working are said to effect certain models.

It is also reported that BMW models such as the 3-Series E46 is notorious for suffering from faulty window regulators which fail to open and close a window once they break. As the window motor will cease to work.

A full service on a BMW may include looking at the window motor specifically due to the common problems associated with the part.

The structural integrity of the car battery will also be checked as it is possible for a car battery to crack which leads to battery acid leakage which is really bad news!

BMW Water Pump

BMW has been one of the first and few manufacturers to use an electrical water pump in its vehicles. The likes of Audi and Mercedes use a water pump which is driven by a pump, however, BMW decided that an electrical pump would help to reduce the amount of noise produced by the engine while having less of an energy drain on the engine itself.

If the water pump on your BMW is not performing in the way that it should, it may need to be replaced which can be a labour-intensive job, depending on the model.

Due to the fact that BMW is one of the only brands to use an electrical water pump, it is likely to be specifically checked during a full service while it may not be a part that is inspected on other brands.

BMW Steering and Suspension

The steering and suspension system on your BMW is connected symbiotically like on every car and a rigorous check will be carried out during a full service.

The shock absorbers will also be checked in this part of the full service.

BMW Tyres, Wheel Balance, Wheel Alignment

The wheels and tyres on your BMW will be thoroughly tested and checked in order to establish if they are fit to grip the road and direct the car while being driven.

Specific machinery will be used to check if the wheels are out of alignment and a visual check will be enough to establish whether the tread of the tyre is deep enough and the balance of the tyre is correct.

Other parts checked during a BMW full service include;

Spark Plugs

The Air Filter

The Fuel Filter

BMW Dealership, Independent Garage or Fast Fit Chain?

When it comes to deciding where to have your full service performed on your BMW, you should know what options you have and what the difference between a dealership, independent garage and fast fit chain is.

It is not a legal requirement to have a full service on your BMW each year, therefore, what gets checked during a full service is not bound by law.

As a result, what gets checked may differ from one garage to the next and especially between an independent garage, fast fit chain and dealership.
