1987 Mercedes-Benz 260E Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 260E

Your 260E’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your 260E and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you tune into you 1987 Mercedes-Benz 260E drivetrain, you help maintain your vehicle’s overall power. Follow Mercedes-Benz's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
