2003 Mercedes-Benz CL500 Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2003 Mercedes-Benz CL500

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your CL500's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Mercedes-Benz, from back to front. It’s one of your CL500’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2003 Mercedes-Benz CL500, 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.
