2006 Mercedes-Benz C280 Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2006 Mercedes-Benz C280

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your C280's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Mercedes-Benz, from back to front. 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 2006 Mercedes-Benz C280, 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.
