2012 Mercedes-Benz C300 Drivetrain Service

2012 Mercedes-Benz C300 Drivetrain Service

Your C300 drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Mercedes-Benz, from back to front. It’s one of your C300’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2012 Mercedes-Benz C300, 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.

What Are Mercedes-Benz C300 Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are not all the same. You don't want to go to any random shop for drivetrain repair. You want to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can fix many 2012 Mercedes-Benz C300 drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your Mercedes-Benz could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice resistance when turning, heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. It’s difficult to nail down a timeline for drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. That’s one reason it’s a wise idea to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign your Mercedes-Benz C300 doesn’t drive like it used to.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2012 Mercedes-Benz C300? Minor differential repairs, like gasket or seal replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, can sometimes be more expensive since they’re more labor intensive.
