What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300E

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 300E's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Mercedes-Benz, from back to front. It’s one of your 300E’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you tune into you 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300E 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.
