All About 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300TE Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 300TE's engine to its wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your 300TE’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 300TE to maintain its performance power. You can minimize repairs by following Mercedes-Benz's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
