Recently decided to fit new discs, pads and shoes to my 2011 C220 W204 but I'm having trouble with the O/S rear disc.
I stripped down ok and popped in new shoes, installed new springs to hold shoes in place and the springs to pull the shoes together however when attempting to fit...
Evaning all, i am about to replace my pads, disks and wear sensors but have ran into a problem. On some of the popular car part sites i can't seem to find rear brake pad wear sensors.
Is this becans the sensor is universal and fits into front and rear or can anyone give me a heads up were to...
Had loud squealing and loud clang from front wheel last night. Assuming just a stone caught between disk and guard. However I noted that there is a blue sensor one driver side front brake only. What is it and is it correct that only on one front wheel?
Got a 2009 Mercedes S550 4Matic. Everything was good with it no prior shaking, damage, weird noises, then I start the car and start driving and I see the message pop up (ABS & ESP currently unavailable) also the power steering turns off and it gets hard to turn the wheel. The only thing prior to...
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!
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?
Hello my friend.
In my ML 320 (W163) 2001 is having a big problem.
First, the history is that a friend gave it to me for free. Because he is not using it anymore and at the used-store they were giving him only 800 eur for the car.... NOTHING. . and he thought...I can make somebody happy.... and...
My story starts with the usual one of a MB dealer saying my front pads are 90% worn and in the opinion of the technician the discs should be done at the same time. 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...
I have recently got my first Mercedes C-class 220d new and done 6000miles in it.
Recently I have noticed vibrations through the brake peddle when depressed and the accelerator peddle. I am also getting it through the steering wheel.
I am doing mainly motorway miles and A-roads...
I've had a long standing problem with the parking brake with the foot pedal not springing back once released. It started with it not coming all the way back up and the light staying on until giving it a little help hooking a foot underneath to bring it up all the way. That developed into it only...
Am searching for brakes for my S600 bi turbo W220. When looking at my pads there is an indent on bottom middle of the pad and looks like it has 4 brake pads each side (on the front).
I couldn't find the correct pads with my reg or model but when I search S63, I found the pads straight...
I have an R230 that today has started to emit a short squeal occasionally when braking. I tried braking when stationary with the engine running but in 'Park', and it still makes the noise as the pedal movement passes a certain point.
If I hold it at the point where it squeals, it...
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?
I'm picking my car up tomorrow for a inlet manifold issue which is hopefully sorted. He has also mentioned that my back brake pipes are corroded and need replaced. He will issue me with a quote for these. What kind of price would or should I be looking at and how long should it take. Thanks
New member. Trust I am posting in correct area.
I bought a 2001 E430 three years ago. Great car. Two mots no problem. This time failed only on excessive brake pedal travel.
Garage bled brakes. Worked a couple of days only.
Replaced master cylinder. Tried mot. Falied same problem and they said...
Good evening all.
I have had a CLK500 for the last year, it was CAT C'd back in 2008 and put straight back on the road with all the correct paperwork. MOT'd & serviced by an Indy Merc garage 3 months ago, currently 86k on the clock. Last week whilst in the outside lane of the M25 the brakes...
This is my third Mercedes but my first SL, I picked up a one owner SL280 1997 with FMBSH and only 52,000 miles on the clock in great condition.
Over the next few months I will be looking to change the tyres to a better grade and possibly uprated pads and discs as Im driving her to...
