2003 Mercedes-Benz C230 Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2003 Mercedes-Benz C230

Your C230’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Mercedes-Benz, from back to front. It's one of the most complex systems in your C230 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2003 Mercedes-Benz C230, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can minimize repairs by following Mercedes-Benz's recommendations for checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears.
