Your 380SEC drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Mercedes-Benz, from the axles to the transmission.

Care for your 1983 Mercedes-Benz 380SEC to maintain its performance power. Follow Mercedes-Benz's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
