The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 380SL's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Mercedes-Benz, from back to front. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. Care for your 1983 Mercedes-Benz 380SL 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.
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 1983 Mercedes-Benz 380SL drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Mercedes-Benz 380SL may need driveshaft attention if you feel resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. 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 380SL drives.
You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1983 Mercedes-Benz 380SL? Again, it depends!
