Your 500SEL drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Mercedes-Benz, from back to front. It’s one of your 500SEL’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Mercedes-Benz's recommendations.
Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Mercedes-Benz could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. A lot depends on your driving style and climate. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Mercedes-Benz 500SEL drives.
You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL? Again, it depends! Some more minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, can be a little more expensive since the labor is much more intensive.
