    W211 rear brakes replacement

    Hi Folks, Im looking to fit new rear discs and pads on my 2005 E270. I assume I can disable the brake assist thing by simply disconnecting the battery? Otherwise it all looks quite straightforward. Sorry for such a basic question! Thanks, Nik

    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!

That'll be the best part of £500 sir. I politely refused and have today checked the car myself. The discs are well over published...

    Brake Vacuum Pump

    Hi, I have a Mercedes S350 2010 Diesel, had a experience on Thursday where the brakes went hard and could not stop the car. Recently had a replacement brake pump fitted, Would the vacuum brake pump work if it was either a pump from a petrol or a Diesel?
