MERCEDES BENZ CLASS C II 203 PLS HELP W203 Front Brake Pads Discs replacement Questions

Hi I am new to this forum. Apologies in advance if I broke any rule. I own C180 Kompressor Elegance W203 “ 2005 Model. Reg BL54NGF I have few questions about front brake pads discs replacement I hope there will be somebody kind to help me out. 1 - I recently start getting little knocking sound when i press the brake gently coming down from 50MPH to 40MPH and then 30MPH. Note sure where this comes

If you get a knocking sound as you slow down it may not be related to the brakes it may be a worn control arm or sway bar bushing. Could be a universal joint gone bad on the driveshaft. Could be motor mounts. But it could also mean your caliper bracket broke or the pins that hold the caliper in place have broken. Either case its serious enough to have a qualified mechanic put it on a lift and look

Quote 1 - I recently start getting little knocking sound when i press the brake gently coming down from 50MPH to 40MPH and then 30MPH. Note sure where this comes from Is it concerning What could have caused this I can tell exactly what this is. I just changed the pads and rotors on my 2006 and got the knocking noise on the right side. Apparently the aftermarket rotors and not dimensionally the same

Im not sure I can buy that as a solution. It seems to me that the lug bolts would secure the rotor tightly in place on the hub regardless of the set screw being in place or not. My guess is that the caliper slides have dust and grime build up on them or are scored which caused some binding when applying the brakes. I would recommend cleaning the slides and applying some high-temp grease. Also if you

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS B I 245 B class original front brake pads&discs(rotors)

Can B class users share with me opinions with front brake pads and rotors. My front brake pads are worn second time on 88000 km first ones was worn on 51000 km. Rotors are also in bad condition and needs replacing. I often use motor to brake but must confess that I have about 90% city driving with start stop features. On previous cars I had much better life of pads and rotors...

My biggest problem withe the front pads is the immense brake dust they produce. Some have said its because theyre not too hard. One good thing about them wearing is it forces you to check things out (caliper rotor sliders etc.) if you normally dont.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E III 211 06 E500 front brake pads and rotors just replaced

Just replaced the front rotors and pads on my 06 E500 wo 4matic. Hardest part was hammering the original rotors off. My friends and I hit it for quite some time using 2 mallets and some WD-40. I got a lot out of this site and saved a lot of money so I want to share some info. Some things to note 1) my car only had 1 sensor in the front right. No sensor on the front left. 2) torx bit size 20 to remove

out 2 pins. Clip held on by 2 pins come off easily and you can access the pads easily 6) disconnected SBC prior to starting job. Connector would not come off all the way so I wedged a thick piece of paper just to prevent any contact. 7) no error messages after job completion. 8) front pads and sensors were oredered from parts.com pads part number 004 420 9020 9) bought the rotors from Hoehn mercedes.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 W210 Front Brake Rotor Disc

Folks We have a brnad new 2002 E200K it si 36000Kms on the clock. My dealer told us we need a new set of brake pad. It is OK given the Warning light has already come up. But Dealer said we also need a set of new Rotor With the very first set of brake pad replacemnt since new Questions What are the Width of the front Rotor disc when new What are the recommended limit for replacmeent Many Thanks.

My 2 cents... Dont bother to have the stock original rotors machined. I did and in 2 weeks they warped. I even replaced the pads with the stock ATE very dusty pads. This was done at about 35K miles. After the rotors were warped I replaced them with Brembo stock versions. Now at 62K I just replaced the pads again. This time I went with EBC green. The Brembo rotors have held up pretty well and I just

I have a 2009 E350 4matic w sport package. Can someone help me or point me in the right direction. I have never work on this car before but I do have experiences working on cars in general. I know all cars have there own funny little issues. Any help would be appreciated.

Akebono brakes and centric premium rotors from Rockauto did the trick for me and they work great with minimal to no dust on my E500. The only headache I encountered was discovering that I had to pop off the plasticrubber bolt covers for the caliper and caliper frame bolts to expose the torx bolts. Also you will need to pry back the old brakes just enough to slip the caliper assembly off of the rotors.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W163 Q Should the front wheels move as easy as rear wheels after Brake Pads change

Quick Question On a 2000 MB ML320 Should the front wheels rotate as easily as the rear wheels Ive installed new brake pads and I performed a rotate check by hand. The rear wheels rotate very easily - they almost spin freely. The front wheels can be rotated by using my hands with no special difficulty however they are not rotating as easily as the rear wheels. For all wheels the range of easy rotation

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E III 211 2003 E320 brake padsensor replacement - does battery have to be disconnected

all i want to replace the front brake padssensors on my 2003 E320 and was wondering if the battery needs to be disconnected to do this job ive read that certain brake repairs require the battery disconnect so i just want to be certain before i begin. thanks in advance

I do not know if this happens to anybody else. I had to get a parcel out of the back after forgetting to bring it inside. I only opened the rear door and I did not hear the SBC system pre-test the brakes and pump the calipers. Not sure if it is only the drivers door or either front door that has to open to get the SBC to wake up.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS C II 203 Question on Brake Pads

What does this mean brake pads F 1mm R 2mm before sensor brake Rotors F 24.6MM MIN 22.4MM R 8.7MM MIN 7.3MM I got this in mercedes inspection report. Also how many MM between sensor and the brake disc

guess is - it needs single piston and the type is disc. Is that correct Hey Carromkid yes you are correct..You have 4 wheel disc brakes so rotors (also known as brake discs) all the way around. Check out the sponser section on the left sidecolumn of this page. Definitely find pads from many of the spnsers... and rotors too if you need them. Heres one of many DIYs out there.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W163 2000 ML320 Rear Brake Pad Install

Does anyone know how to replace the read brake pad for ML320 Looks like the front and rear are different. I cant get the caliper off and remove the pads. I think there is some trick for the rear one. Anyone please help Thank you

The only thing substantially different between the front and rear brakes on the ML320 will be evident when (if) you remove the rotor. The rear rotor actually has an inner drum with brake shoes used for the parking brake. Sometimes that system„s adjustment wheel has to be turned to relieve pressure between the shoes and drum before the rotor can be pulled free from the hub  exactly like working

to come out first. You may have to lift up on the caliper and pull the bottom out letting the top pad notches pivot on the top slide (or vice-versa). Once you do this you should be in good to replace the pads. If this does not do the trick let me know and I„ll see what I can help you with. - RODNEY Rodney I am in the same situation that you describe here but being very new to car repair on a benz

Ok guys Im getting ready to do a brake pad change on my 2004 C230 Kompressor (I have about 30K miles the brake light has NOT come on yet) I am getting ready to order the pads... Mine has the factory cross-drilled front discs. I guess all the C230s have that but just want to be sure here There are several pads listed. I know this is probably a stupid question but does my C230 need the front brake pad

Thanks for the reply...thing is I would like to order them online. I was going to order PAGID brand pads. They only list the two options I stated in my first post... My discs are factory cross-drilled and the calipers look pretty big and say mercedes benz printed very large on the caliper... Anyone know if this is considered the EvolutionSports brakes Do all C230 Sedans have front calipers that say mercedes benz on them Thanks

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS C III 204 Front brake rotors

Just bought some Zimmerman front rotors and notice that the ventilation vanes seem to point in different directions when set up as they would be on the car (ie LH rotor vanes point forward and RH vanes point backward) Retailer says they are non directional but that doesnt seem to make sense.(however the ones on the car are the same) I was comforted to see balancing evidence on these rotors that I did not see on some that I got for my SLK some time ago.

discussion on the subject on BMWVW and Porsche sites 10 each Oberoi I must admit I havent replaced the caliper bolts the two times Ive changed pads since Ive had the car from new.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W164 Brake Pad Wear

Heres a question... There have been a couple of threads about brakes recently. It has been stated that the ML brakes are coupled so they wear evenly between the front and rear. Im not so sure about that but anyway if that is the case then why do the fronts dust up more than the rears Unless the pads are made of different material it would make sense to me that all wheels would look the same. Also how

I too was skeptical about the brake wear leveling system but my rears were almost as badly worn as my fronts during my last replace. It caught me by surprise for sure (wasnt excited about dropping another 100 on pads etc once I thought I was in the clear). I like the brake feel of the ML using the OEM pads and have installed OEMs (not the benz-branded OEMs but the centex ones which benz just slaps

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS G Brake Pads & Shoes

I will be due for new brake pads and shoes soon. Since I still have my old brake shoes I am planning to re-use them. I know that mercedes has the replacement pads that pop-rivet on. I want to look into alternatives. On my sedans I have switched over to Pagid pads. I love them Does Pagid (or anyone else) make the softer pads and shoes for G-Wagons Has anyone else found anything that works better

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS S IV 220 Changing Brake Pads

Two months ago I decided to change out my front disc brake pads. Although I had not yet gotten the brake pad sensor warning light in order to do it when it best suited my schedule at 60k miles I elected to do this with 1 mm of pad lining before the sensor pit wore through. The pad change out was similar to older MBs that I™ve worked on before with a few new twists (Airmatic ceramic pads and rotor wear).

When removing old brake pads the caliper pistons need to be pushed back. This compresses the volume of brake fluid in the caliper and pushes it back to the system. In this case I did not have to drain or siphon off any brake fluid. I had a turkey baster for that purpose along with a metal screw top can if I needed to draw off any fluid. Since I had flushed the brake fluid 18 months earlier was not

Ive put Akebono pads on my C320CDI and couldnt be more pleased with them. Bought them from Rock Auto. They have good feel they have plenty of stopping power and hardly an atom of brake dust. As for new calipers I think youre being gouged or the mechanics are being lazy not thinking it through or both. I agree with other posters that its extremely unlikely calipers would need replacing on a 2011 model.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 Stuck Rear Brake Caliper

I purchased this 99 E320 wagon in September of this year and its been full of little suprises so far. The biggest suprises were the 40 spots of rust I had to repair. I was aware of about 5 spots from the buyer and I know I should have expected more but I was mostly just looking for a decent wagon with 7 passenger seating. So while changing over to winter tireswheels I noticed the driver side rear rotor

the square shape to which you refer looks like a label that was not removed from the alloywheel before mounting. The mounting marks of the wheel on the disk suggest it is an alloy. i.e it was a new wheel fitted. Did the car have an accident previously have an accident where that wheel was struck Perhaps it spun and hit the rim off kirbing Hence the new wheel and the uneven wear - just a theory. discs
