1985 Mercedes-Benz 300D Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300D

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 300D's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300D, 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 Mercedes-Benz's recommendations.

What Are Mercedes-Benz 300D Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300D drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Mercedes-Benz could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. There’s no expiration date on the system’s pieces and parts. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Mercedes-Benz 300D doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300D? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
