2004 Mercedes-Benz CL500 Drivetrain Service

2004 Mercedes-Benz CL500 Drivetrain Service

Your CL500 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 the most complex systems in your CL500 and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2004 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.
