1985 Mercedes-Benz 300SD Drivetrain Service

Your 300SD drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Mercedes-Benz, from the axles to the transmission. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you tune into you 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300SD drivetrain, you help maintain your vehicle’s overall power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Mercedes-Benz's recommendations.

When to Get Mercedes-Benz 300SD 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 visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300SD drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your 300SD might need driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Mercedes-Benz 300SD.

How much does it cost to fix your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300SD drivetrain? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
