1988 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL Drivetrain Service

All About 1988 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL Drivetrain Service

Your 420SEL drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. 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 1988 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL to maintain its performance power. Follow Mercedes-Benz's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
