1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Drivetrain Service

1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Drivetrain Service

Your 560SEL’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the 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: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL, 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.
