Your 300TE’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Mercedes-Benz, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your 300TE and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300TE to maintain its performance power. Follow Mercedes-Benz's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
You don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are all different. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300TE drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your 300TE might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. 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." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Mercedes-Benz 300TE drives.
You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300TE? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
