    W209 Parking Brake Adjustment and Pedal Return Issue

    I've browsed various forums and threads and haven't been able to solve this. First of all is the adjustment. At the last MOT I believe the parking brake was flagged as having no effect and I presume the garage adjusted it. After that it felt like the brakes were binding a little, perhaps it was...

    Brakes Sound W205 Coupe

    Hey all, I’m getting this brake sound at very very low speeds (coming to a standstill, parking maneouvres and switching from P to D and R). The pads and discs are fine. Any ideas on what it might be or is it normal sound from the pads still in contact with the discs while moving? Thanks!

    Installing 3rd brake light on w124

    I'd like to add a third (aka high level) brake light to my 124 saloon. I know US spec cars had this from factory, but I believe not so on the European models.

Sometimes it's fine, but then sometimes I'll turn on the engine and the brake light will be on. It will either go off when...
