The propeller shaft, also known as a driveshaft, is a component in a vehicle that transmits power from the engine to the wheels. In a Mercedes-Benz vehicle, the propeller shaft is typically located at the rear of the vehicle, and is responsible for delivering power from the transmission to the rear wheels.

A couplings is a mechanical device that connects two shafts together and allows them to rotate at the same speed while transmitting torque. In the case of a propeller shaft, couplings are typically used to connect the two parts of the propeller shaft that are separated by the differential.

In Mercedes-Benz vehicle, the propeller shaft couplings are typically made of durable materials such as rubber or polyurethane. They help to reduce vibrations and noise and ensure smooth power transmission. These couplings are also wear and tear items that may require replacement over time. They are also known as “guibo”, “flex disc” or “drive shaft coupling” It is recommended to get them inspected and replaced if necessary during regular maintenance to keep the vehicle running smoothly.
