Mercedes- Benz Propshafts: The Sprinter, Vito, Viano, and ML SUV
There are a large variety of propshaft wheelbase options for the Mercedes Vito: short, medium, long and extra long. We will always recommend a genuine replacement propshaft and have a number in stock at any one time. To establish the correct propshaft, only your vehicle registration is required: our parts identification software will identify the correct propshaft for your vehicle. The genuine VW part offers the best long-term solution for a Mercedes Vito, and comes with an eighteen month warranty. However, alternative options are available if a lower cost is priority. We can offer a repair or complete aftermarket propshaft, both of which come with a six month warranty.
As with the Mercedes Vito, there are a number of propshaft wheelbase options for the Mercedes Viano, including short, medium, long and extra long. We provide various options to cater for all budgets. The propshaft can be replaced with a genuine VW part, the best option if budget allows, to ensure the longevity of the part. There is an eighteen month warranty on the genuine replacement part. Alternatively, the propshaft can be repaired, or a complete aftermarket propshaft provided, both of which are cheaper options with a six month warranty.
The front shaft is the major point of failure on the Mercedes ML. It has a double cardan and CV joint, and it is the double cardan that fails. The rear propshaft is prone to centre bearing failures. We are able to replace both the double cardan and the centre bearing with a genuine part and this would be the best option if the vehicle will be subject to significant additional mileage. With the genuine replacement part an eighteen month warranty is applicable. Alternatively, we can repair or replace these parts with aftermarket products which still have a six month warranty and are more appropriate for the cost-conscious or vehicles with a limited expected mileage.
Equally, the Sprinter is available in short, medium, long and extra long variants and there is a different propshaft set up for each and every variant. We keep a number of Sprinter propshafts in stock at our premises, and these will cover the vast majority of these variants. However, if we don’t have stock availability, we will build the propshaft for you. Different repair options are available depending on your budget and the length of time you will be keeping the vehicle for. The centre bearing we fit is always original equipment, ensuring durability of the part as well as a smoother driving experience.
