You must change the drive shaft of your SLK (Mercedes-Benz) approximately every 80,000 miles. But it must be checked regularly, especially the CV boots. Note that changing the drive shaft requires the correct tools to remove the wheel and braking system, as well as changing the oil in the gearbox. In order to best determine the part number of the suitable drive shaft for your vehicle, enter the model and exact engine specifications of your SLK (Mercedes-Benz) into our selector.
A rattling noise when taking bends will indicate play between the camshaft and joints in the case of front traction. In contrast, during propulsion, this sound may be detected when driving straight ahead during acceleration or deceleration.
When you decide to purchase a drive shaft for your car, it is important to look for certain points. Check the assembly side (wheel or gearbox), the number of teeth and total length. It essential to know these measurements, in order to select the appropriate drive shaft.
