1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE Drivetrain Repair

All About 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE Drivetrain Service

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 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 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Mercedes-Benz's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
