1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SE Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SE

Your 380SE’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 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SE, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Mercedes-Benz's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.

What Are Mercedes-Benz 380SE 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 come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SE drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Mercedes-Benz 380SE may need driveshaft attention if you feel vibration as your vehicle accelerates, clunks when shifting, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, or resistance when turning. 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. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Mercedes-Benz 380SE drives.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SE? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can lean toward being more affordable. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
