1989 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 420SEL's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Mercedes-Benz, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your 420SEL and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL 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.

Mercedes-Benz 420SEL Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1989 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Mercedes-Benz could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, 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. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Mercedes-Benz 420SEL.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Big repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
