2008 Mercedes-Benz CL550 Drivetrain Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL550

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your CL550's engine to its wheels. It spans the full length of your Mercedes-Benz, from back to front. It’s one of your CL550’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL550, 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.

When to Get Mercedes-Benz CL550 Drivetrain Repairs

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 go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL550 drivetrain components including the CV axles, joints, and driving shaft. Your Mercedes-Benz CL550 may need driveshaft attention if you feel 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." So much depends on the climate and your driving style. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Mercedes-Benz CL550.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL550? Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Major repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
