1984 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL Drivetrain Service

1984 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL Drivetrain Service

Your 500SEL drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s one of your 500SEL’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1984 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL, you help maintain your vehicle's power. Follow Mercedes-Benz's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
