1996 Mercedes-Benz C280 Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1996 Mercedes-Benz C280

Your C280’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 one of your C280’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: axles, wheels, driveshafts, differentials, and joints. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1996 Mercedes-Benz C280, 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.
