1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Drivetrain Service

1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Drivetrain Service

Your 560SL’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Mercedes-Benz, from the axles to the transmission. 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 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL, 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.
