Your CL500’s drivetrain has a very important job. It transmits power from the engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It's one of the most complex systems in your CL500 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1998 Mercedes-Benz CL500 to maintain its performance power. Follow Mercedes-Benz's recommendations for lubricating bearings/gears and checking/changing differential fluids to minimize repairs over time.
Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to come see the technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1998 Mercedes-Benz CL500 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. 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. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system’s parts and pieces don’t have a set expiration date. Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Mercedes-Benz CL500 drives.
How much does it cost to fix your 1998 Mercedes-Benz CL500 drivetrain? Some smaller differential fixes, like gasket or seal replacement, are usually pretty affordable. Major repairs, like bearing or gear replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
