German term or phrase: "reduziert sich dadurch...auf den regelmäßigen Ölwechsel"
To replace the roller bearing of the engine and drive unit, please read the chapter. The information applies similarly to engine bearings and drive bearings with the difference that engine bearings are greased while drive bearings are oiled.

Das Nachschmieren und der vollständige Wechsel des Schmiermittels reduziert sich dadurch für Getriebelager auf den regelmäßigen Ölwechsel.

You don't have to apply lubricant and change the lubricant completely as you do regular oil changes?

regular oil changes
Explanation:
For the drive bearings, therefore, relubrication as well as the application of new lubricant are handled/taken care of through regular oil changes.
in other words, for the drive bearings regular oil changes take the place of the relubrication (regreasing at regular intervals) and the application of new lubricant (grease) required for the other bearings.
HTH!

For gearbox bearings,


Explanation:
re-lubricating and the complete lubrication change is thus reduced to a regular oil change.

Explanation:
As I read this, you are almost right with your translation. You reduce the need to regrease or completely change the lubricant, if regular oil changes are carried out

is[/can be] limited... to regular oil change intervals


Explanation:
Hopefully, my suggestion flows a little better and fits well with your context: "For gearbox bearings, additional lubrication and a complete lubricant change is[/can be] limited to regular oil change intervals."

The passage seems to praise the advantages of certain gearbox bearings which do not have to be lubricated often. Specifically, they don't need to be lubricated or their lubricant exchanged in between oil changes which used to be the case in the old days. Nowadays, bearings are low maintenance bearings and treat your wallet much nicer :->

Cheerio,
Dierk
